Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

Focusing on risky interactions, the book centres on those interactions that threaten identities and relationships and sometimes careers such as: practising dissent; repairing broken relationships; managing privacy; responding to harassment; offering criticism and communicating emotion. In doing so the text helps students understand types of work situations that are both ethically challenging and personally risky while presenting a theoretical model to help them: integrate existing research, analyze situations, and generate new questions.

Vince Waldron has been recognized as a Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
