HD 350 - Communication and the Life Cycle

3 credits
This class is about life cycles and communication concepts. It is a goal of this class to enhance understanding of the interconnected and interdependent components of communication and tasks of various life cycle changes. Whether it's an infant learning about trust, an older adult learning to adjust to physical and mental changes, or any of the many stages in between, we all have a vital need to communicate with one another. Focusing on specific life cycle stages and how attention to communication can facilitate engagement with the task of that stage will provide valuable information for personal and professional relationships. Communication and life cycle issues will be addressed in a holistic way, looking at the needs of both parties as well as the special context of attentiveness.
