When people communicate, they often adapt their interaction styles to one another. For example, they may match each other's behavior, synchronize the timing of behavior, or behave in dissimilar ways. This volume analyzes these dyadic interaction patterns and builds a case for a new theory of adaptation: Interaction Adaptation Theory (IAT), which draws the soundest principles from previous theories while being responsive to current empirical evidence. The book concludes with the offer of new research directions that would test the theory in order to bring the research full circle and connect interaction patterns with outcomes. This volume will serve as both a reference guide for researchers and a text for students and faculty in communication, psychology, family studies, counseling, and sociolinguistics.

Industry Reviews

"...the most comprehensive coverage of the literature on interpersonal adaptation that I have seen in recent years." Cindy Gallois, Quarterly Journal of Speech "Even researchers who are familiar with the theories will find this analysis interesting and informative...Interpersonal Adaptation fills an important gap in the literature and should interest those who want to learn more about the dynamics of interaction patterns." Miles L. Patterson, Contemporary Psychology "A valuable resource for human communication researchers." Choice "The reader is encouraged to imagine conversation as the erector set of human relationships: they not only create the foundation and frame on which relationships are built, but supply the mortar that binds people together." Human Resources Abstracts "In this ambitious book, Burgoon, Stern and Dillman present the most comprehensve coverage of the literature on interpersonal adaptation that I have seen in recent years...The book gets more interesting as it goes along and the authors delve more into their own research...The book is worth its price for adavnced students and researchers in interpersonal adaptation." Cindy Gallois, Quarterly Journal of Speech
