For courses in Adjustment, Interpersonal Behavior, and Human Relations

A conceptual and skills-based overview of relationship building in today’s world

Human Relations: The Art and Science of Building Effective Relationships helps students learn how to communicate more effectively within all of their personal and professional relationships. Employing a three-tiered approach to human relations, author Vivian McCann helps students to understand the psychological concepts that underlie relationships, to build the skills needed to communicate effectively, and to consider the influence of cultural norms and backgrounds throughout the relationship-building process. Revised to reflect the latest data and research, the Second Edition also includes updated information about how new technologies have greatly impacted today’s relationships.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

Human Relations: The Art and Science of Building Effective Relationships, Second Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
