Synopses & Reviews
Handbook of Interpersonal Competence Research offers a vital desk reference to anyone doing research on social skills and interaction. Interpersonal competence, defined broadly, refers to the quality or skillfulness of social interaction. The reference manual provides a complete and comprehensive bibliography on this subject, with over 1,600 entries, in addition to a review of over 80 measures directly related to the study of competence. The Handbook covers more measures, more constellation measures, and provides a far more detailed bibliography than any source available to date. No other work on this subject approaches the level of breadth and depth of both published and unpublished background sources. Handbook of Interpersonal Competence Research will be valuable to clinicians, consulting psychologists, organizational consultants, researchers, and students interested in the assessment of social skills.
