Thursday, July 22, 2010

Drs. Forward and Czech just received word that their co-authored paper "Why (Most) Everything You Think you Know About Gibb's Supportive and Defensive Communication Climate Theory may Be Wrong and What To Do About It" was accepted by the Small Group Communication Division. The paper, which is based in part on Dr. Czech's dissertation, statistically analyzes a small group communication assessment instrument. Both Forward and Czech have frequently taught the Small Group Communication course here at PLNU. This paper will be presented at the national Communication Association Convention this November in San Diego. It is the authors' eighth collaborative project to be presented at regional or national conferences.
