PSY 351 - Human Relations 1: Communications

Course Units: 1
(Fall; Walker) Explores interpersonal communication as it shapes and is shaped by human relationships. Psychological theories of interpersonal communication are presented with a view to explicating the processes by which people come to describe, explain, or otherwise account for experiences with others. Categories of “abnormal” behavior and approaches to psychotherapy are revisited from the perspective of communications theory. Similarly, communications theory will be examined for its role in everyday relationships including familial, romantic, and work communications, with special attention to the role of the helping professional (e.g., psychologist, medical/health professional, etc.). The lab portion of the course will include opportunities for experiential learning, including: practice with clinical research methods for coding and analyzing factors salient in dyad and group interpersonal communication (e.g., non-verbal, verbal, and other aspects of communication). Prerequisite(s): PSY 200   and PSY 300    CC: SCLB Note: This course is designed to be taken in sequence with PSY 451   , but enrollment in PSY 451 is optional and may be taken in a subsequent year, space permitting.  Please also note that the previous name of this course was “Seminar in Human Relations 1”.
