Two kinds of communication assumptions are listed in the book Poetic Healing (Huglen XV). “Two critical assumptions are needed to understand the communication side of this book. First, our in-the-present communication reflects the conditions, experiences, and realities of the past. For example, the veteran’s poems were written days and years after the war, but they are poems about the war and therefore reflect the conditions of war, his experiences of war, and his realities of war. Second, while our in-the-present communication to some degree reflects the past, it also creates the conditions, experiences, and realities of the present, which in turn charts the future. This second assumption is essential to keep in mind when reading the poetry.” (XV)The in-the-present communication, as an example, is when you talk or write about your childhood memories. My father always tells us stories about his tough childhood back in the fifteens reflecting his past and how hard was everything back then in world war two. His stories also compare realities of the past and present at the same time.Differences among intrapersonal communication, group communication, and mass communication: “Intrapersonal is different from other forms: impersonal pertains to general information; interpersonal refers to relations between two or more people; group refers to communication among three or more people; public pertains to the delivery of formal presentations involving ten or more people; computer mediated pertains to electronic communication; and mass refers todistributions of information to large audiences through newspapers, televisions, radios, and other mediums” (Huglen, p 3)I think Intrapersonal communication is communicating with one’s self, an example is when I speak to myself -which I do very often- to complain about being such a disorganized person.However group communication is when between three or more people and all actively participate in the conversation. A conversation between three friends about the presidential election and Election Update: How Big Is HillaryClinton's Leadis an example of group communication.
