Compiled, Edited, and Written by Pamela J. Gerber and Heidi Murphy 

Cover Image, description by the artist: Abstracted representation of interaction taking place between two different individuals. The thin line around each circle represents what you notice first (readily detectable characteristics). The inside of each circle means all deep-level characteristics someone has (e.g., personality, attitudes, education, skills, etc.). Each arrow represents the type of communication taking place between each individual. The arrows on each side mean self-reflection. Those within each circle mean intrapersonal communication. Anyone is free to interpret the meaning of each color, because it may vary across people, settings, and situations. CCO 1.0
