Dr. Byrd Comm 110 -01 Listen Speak Engage Interpersonal relationships are the core of life. We are immersed in them from birth to  death like the air we breathe. Because interpersonal relationships are such an intricate  part of human life and the human experience we tend to take them for granted.  However, the fact that interpersonal relationships are so central to the human  experience makes it essential that we learn as much about them as we can. What are  they, what are their functions, how do we improve them, and how do we create, maintain  and dissolve them: these are the questions to be addressed in the interpersonal  communication course.  It is through the creation and sharing of meaning among two or more persons that  infants are talked into humanity. It is through the process of interpersonal communication  that we come to know who we are. Interpersonal communication allows us to connect  with other human beings and our environment. It is the shaper of our minds and the glue  that binds us together. While families are the basic building blocks of every society, interpersonal relationships are the  stuff of which families are made.
