WK6 Discussion COMM1004.docx - 1 Choose a relationship...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

1. Choose a relationship where you have experienced disconfirming messages. Describe the relationship and tell us about the overall climate of that relationship. 2. Describe the disconfirming communication that took place. What was the outcome of it? What can you do in the future to help create a positive communication climate? I think due to the familiarity of parent/child relationships, they are often fraught with interpersonal conflict and disconfirmation (Climate and Conflict, 2016). I have experienced disconfirming messages while communicating with my mom and I’m afraid that I have communicated disconfirming messages with my kids. Just this evening, my ten-year-old son and I engaged in a conversation in which the climate of our communication (Jenkinson, 2014) quickly declined due to disconfirming messages being exchanged. My son and I have always been very close, and the overall climate of our relationship is very warm and loving. We usually communicate with each other very well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
