Communication Privacy Management Theory: How Parents Talk About Their Children Who Have A Chronic Illness, Kara Hutton, Saraj Heller

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

Caring for chronically ill children has received considerable attention in the pediatric health literature.

Many of the responsibilities required of parents may involve communication work in which parents actively design messages as they interact with medical professionals ...

Advanced Meeting Facilitation Techniques, Carol A. Watson, Wendy Moore Nov 2011

Advanced Meeting Facilitation Techniques, Carol A. Watson, Wendy Moore

Participants learned that a well-crafted agenda, thoughtful ground rules, optimal meeting space, and detailed minutes can all set the stage for a successful meeting. However, meetings can still go awry. A poorly facilitated meeting can make everyone dread meetings even if the meeting has been well-planned. Managing or facilitating behaviors is the final essential ingredient for success. Have you ever been in a meeting that is monopolized by one individual? Or someone offers a ...
