Overview

"A Lifetime of Communication explores the developmental processes that make for uniquely human change in growth. In this work, author Julie Yingling utilizes a single case example of a child, her parents, and other influential figures to demonstrate developmental interaction and transformational life events. Using relational and dialogic perspectives, Yingling follows the child from infancy into adolescence and adulthood, and tracks the acquisitions of the means to communicate, to form and develop through relationships, to build human cognitive processes, and to understand the self as a responsible part of the social world." The monograph offers many new insights to scholars in human development, relationships, family studies, social psychology, and others interested in communication and relationships across the life span. It is also appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in developmental communication, relational communications, and on individual effects of social relationships.
