In previous modules, you have learned about observation, attending, open and closed questions, cultural considerations, verbal and nonverbal communication, encouraging, paraphrasing, and active listening. In this assignment, you will use these skills as you interview a friend or relative about a real or imagined decision that needs to be made—a concern, an issue, or an opportunity.
Record the conversation either in video, audio, or virtual chat (Google Hangouts, Skype, Facebook). As with your previous interview assignment (Module One), make sure to have your volunteer sign the Informed Consent Form located in Chapter 2 of your text.
