Learn How To Communicate Effectively

This Certificate in Interpersonal Communication Online Course will teach you how communicating successfully depends on effective use of communication strategies and behaviors.

Words, facial and body movements, tone of voice, even clothing and situation, all form an intricate symbol system that must be quickly translated by those who want to communicate.

It has been said that there is no communication unless a mutual sharing of meaning takes place. It has also been said that one cannot NOT communicate. These two ideas seem to oppose one another, but they are two sides of the same coin. A smile can have many meanings. And so can silence.

There are 12 units of study

Communication Basics

In this lesson, we'll explore two detailed models that explain the complex nature of communication. You'll learn how words, the situation, what's going on in the heads of those communicating, and even environment are all connected—and that they all change from one communication event to the next. I'll explain a way to think about and use language that will help you more effectively avoid misunderstandings.

Communication Misunderstandings

Have you ever been in a situation where you don't know whether to say less, say more, or say nothing? In this lesson, you'll learn seven premises of communication that will help you through those times. Have you ever felt shy, apprehensive, or reluctant about communicating? This lesson will help you understand that reluctance and offer you two strategies for improving communication competence.

The Personal Side of Communication

In this lesson, you'll learn how our individual emotions, beliefs, attitudes, and values as well as self-esteem and group belonging influence how we communicate. You'll also explore how we all seek gratification of specific human needs through the unique and complicated communication process.

Language and Logic

In this lesson, I'll show you how language affects reasoning abilities. You'll learn about constructing useful word maps that benefit your decision making as well as strategies you can use to avoid mental traps that can clog your thinking process. You'll also learn that language has limits, often making it difficult to separate fact from fiction.

Nonverbal Messages

Can you say something without uttering a word? In addition to voice, facial expression, and body movement, today we'll talk about other ways people send messages without making a sound. You'll also learn that men and women develop and use very different nonverbal communication behaviors—sending messages of either inclusion or exclusion.

Intercultural Communication Differences

In this lesson, we'll look at cultural identity and how it molds habits of communication no matter what the language of the culture is. You'll learn how cultures of the world are divided into two main categories. You'll examine how individuals and groups generalize and stereotype others and the psychological reasons for doing that.

Effective Listening

In this lesson, we'll explore types of listening as well as the discipline listening requires. We'll go over the barriers to effective listening, and strategies you can use to improve your listening habits. We'll compare poor listening to empathic listening, and then evaluate the effects each has on personal and professional communication success.

Gender Communication Differences

In this lesson, you're invited to examine gender differences from the inside out. You'll learn how brain structure as well as physical structure helps determine how men and women communicate. You'll learn about the ways humans learn to act as either masculine or feminine and who teaches them. We'll explore how differences in masculine and feminine behavior manifest themselves in personal and business relationships.

Relationship Dynamics

In today's lesson, you'll learn the three main characteristics that make up any relationship as well as the stages that all relationships go through. I'll show you how to identify relationship stages in order to evaluate relationships you have. You'll explore how self-disclosure and psychological balance affects relationships and discover the role lying plays in relationships.

Communication Rules

Today we'll examine several communication theories that will be useful in analyzing and understanding communication behaviors of yourself and others. You'll learn three rules for effective communication behavior that will help you know when and how to adjust your communication behavior. You'll also learn how you can influence the behavior of others in the communication situation.

Conversation Climate

In this lesson, you'll learn how people can change the direction of a conversation to advance a personal agenda. We'll go over strategies of persuasion, characteristics of credibility, and how to achieve a sense of control in a communication situation. We'll also explore the nature of communication cohesiveness within small groups and where individuality fits in group membership.

Interpersonal Conflict Resolution

In our last lesson, you'll learn how to identify various types of interpersonal conflicts and then we'll discuss some myths about conflict. We'll explore ways in which men and women handle conflict differently, and how different cultural groups approach and resolve conflict. You'll learn how to dissect a conflict and apply four steps to successful conflict resolution at work, within the family, or among friends.

Customer Reviews


The subjects covered were very interesting and helpful to my day-to-day life. The writing style was clear. I really enjoyed this course. I am pursuing other communication courses!!!

Thank you so much for the opportunity in utilizing this course! I can already see the difference in my ability to communicate well to others and understand and know when and when not to speak or simply wait my turn. This course was wonderful.

Working through this course has helped me recognize many aspects of communication. I found it very informative and have already applied some of the techniques to my daily communications. I especially benefited from the lessons on effective listening and conflict resolution, however, each lesson was of value to me. I truly enjoyed your course.

This course surprised me in that it was very good indeed and not at all what I expected. There are so many courses from which to choose so this choice was really a shot in the dark. I appreciated the history and background and I could see the instructor at the front of the room with a PowerPoint presentation sharing the information. I deal in the clinical area of research and have a clinical background of more than 30 years. I need to deal with scientists who know the science, but cannot apply it to patients. Communication with them is difficult to say the least. I must say that the listening chapter was the most valuable. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to share what I have learned with them at least by example.

I found this course to be extremely helpful have already experienced significant changes in my relationships with people. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone!

I thought that this course was organized and presented in a very efficient manner. I thought the writing style of the lessons were great. I loved the conversational style that they were presented in. It felt like the instructor was actually speaking to us and not reading out of a text book.

Found the course to be interesting and as an individual in law enforcement, it has helped me communicate much better with people from a diverse background.

Thank you for the course. It was very helpful in opening my eyes, and I look forward to reviewing the information soon. I may even take another class to enhance my learning in the topic of communication.

This was my first online class, so I was hesitant when I registered. It was most beneficial and I have no regrets. I strongly recommend it. The instructor is absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much.

Thank you Dr. Laurel for a great course! You have a very interactive and conversational style of writing which prevents the course reading from being boring. Your examples and analogies were easy to grasp and helped with understanding each lesson. I learned a lot in every lesson and have been able to apply what you've taught us to both my personal and professional relationships. This course superseded my expectations and I'm so happy I chose to take it, especially with you as the instructor!
