Making Relationship Choices
Real-life "Making Relationship Choices" case studies now include videos to help students see "The Other Side" of the scenario. These compelling scenarios challenge students to critically self-reflect, consider others' perspectives, determine best outcomes, and identify potential roadblocks - helping them make more informed communication choices. In the new edition, these case studies have expanded, to include a video in LaunchPad that shows "The Other Side" of each story, so that students can react to the thoughts and feelings of their communication partner and build empathy.
Interpersonal videos accompanied by open-ended questions to help students further engage with the material.
