Communicate better with everyone in your life

In Reflect & Relate, distinguished teacher and scholar Steve McCornack provides students with the best theory and most up-to-date research and then helps them relate that knowledge to their own experiences. Engaging examples and a lively voice hook students into the research, while the book's features all encourage students to critically reflect on their own experiences.

Based on years of classroom experience and the feedback of instructors and students alike, every element in Reflect & Relate has been carefully constructed to give students the practical skill to work through life’s many challenges using better interpersonal communication. The new edition is thoroughly revised with a new chapter on Culture; new, high-interest examples throughout; and up-to-the-moment treatment of mediated communication, covering everything from Internet dating to social media.

Reflect & Relate, Fourth Edition has its own dedicated version of Bedford/St. Martin’s LaunchPad, which brings together all of the book’s student and instructor media, making this a truly integrated print/interactive resource.
