"Reid and Hammersley have produced a clearly written, ecological guide to the nature of interpersonal communication in worksite groups..Communicating Successfully in Groups succeeds in familiarizing readers with the intrapsychic and social psychological factors that influence communication, and ultimately the social climates and productivity of their workplace groups. Readers will come away better able to understand local communication patterns, and with practical instructions for honing the skills they need to help such groups function effectively."-Andrea Meier, PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
This practical guide to the psychology of effective communication is suitable for anyone for whom communication in groups is a key part of their job. No previous knowledge of psychology is assumed and the emphasis is on exercises, key point summaries, assessment and improving your skills in everyday situations like committees, project teams, seminars and focus groups.
Suitable as an introduction for psychology students, it will be invaluable for students of business, medicine, allied health, social work and probation, whether studying on a short course or attending an intensive training session as part of their continuing professional development.
