A Systems Approach to Small Group Interaction

Front Cover
McGraw-Hill, 1992 - Business & Economics - 411 pages
Conceived as a core text for more theoretically based courses, A Systems Approach to Small Group Interaction uses Tubbs' systems model as a framework for explaining and integrating the major small group theories. The book thus offers an opportunity to enable undergraduates to clearly view theories that are usually only found in more advanced books. The new edition has been thoroughly updated to include over 100 new citations, more practical applications of small group interactions, plus new case studies and reading selections.
