- Review Chapter 2 in your text. Focus on the segments of the book on self-concept, self-image, and self-esteem.
- Carefully read the discussion instructions and note that you must not only define these three terms, but you must also relate them to communication.

- Define self-concept, self-image, and self-esteem and relate each to interpersonal and intrapersonal communication. Write at least two sentences analyzing each term.
- Provide an example of how your self-concept, self-image, or self-esteem has affected your interpersonal communication and how interpersonal communication has shaped your ideas of self.
- Use specific examples to illustrate your points.
- How does your example illustrate the relationship between psychology and communication?
Thoroughly address all three elements of this prompt. Consider copying and pasting these tasks into a word file and addressing each of them separately.
Week One Assignment Instructions
In section 1.4, Bevan and Sole (2014) discuss many principles of communication – taking responsibility for your behavior, shared meaning, acknowledging your view is only one, respecting others and yourself, and practicing being a competent communicator. In this assignment, you will explain two of these basic principles and then think through them with an example of miscommunication from your life or a hypothetical scenario. To close, you will identify a challenge Bevan and Sole address (see Section 1.3 on misperception, long-distance relationships and intergenerational relationship) or some other barrier that disrupted the process of communication and how this can be overcome.
Here is the assignment breakdown:
- Drawing on Chapter one in Bevan and Sole (see section 1.4 specifically), explain two basic principles of interpersonal communication.
- Describe an instance of miscommunication (it is okay for you to use a hypothetical).
- Identify one or more challenge (see Bevan and Sole, Section 1.3) or barrier that caused this miscommunication.
- Explain how that challenge or barrier interrupted the process of successful communication and how they can be overcome based on what you’ve learned in this course.
