Examining Theories of Communication: How Do Communication Trainers Use and Evaluate Scientific Theories of Communication? (Top Student Paper)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examines how theories of interpersonal communication are being used in communication trainings for executives, and for what reasons trainers choose specific theories. First, I define communication trainings as part of on-the-job training and give an overview of research regarding the use of theories in trainings. In a second step, the canon of theories of interpersonal communication in communication studies is identified. This is the basis for expert interviews with communication trainers. Results show that the Four-Ears-Model by Schulz von Thun dominates the examined trainings. The explorative findings suggest that factors of socialization, like further education programs for the trainers, play a major role in influencing the choice of theories used in communication trainings. It is recommended that communication and media scholars work together with institutions of education and advanced training to improve the transfer of theories into the praxis of communication trainings.
