Michelle Praxmarer COMM 2500: 11 am Discussion Questions for Wood: Don’t You Want to Spend Time with Me Anymore?:   Understanding the Autonomy-Connection Dialectic 1. What is a relational dialectic? Why does tension from dialectics arise in  relationships? A relational dialectic is the contradiction between two impulses, desires, or needs.  Because they are contradictory, they generate tension that people often times  misunderstand.  The tension between these two forces is interdependent—the result  affects the cause just as much as the cause affects the result. 2. According to the reading, are tensions normal or not? Do they ever go away? Tensions are completely normal—every relationship has them.  The dissolution of a  relationship could often times be from the perception that they  can  go away.

    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.
