Ever Been Hurt in a Close Relationship?
How do people hurt each other’s feelings via communication? How does hurt affect relationships?
Professor Anita Vangelisti will share with members the ways relational partners hurt one another, and the ways they respond to such hurt. Being hurt is an inevitable part of close relationships. What varies from relationship to relationship is not whether partners hurt each other, but how they hurt each other, how often they feel hurt, and how their relationship is affected by hurtful episodes.
Professor Anita Vangelisti holds the Jesse H. Jones Centennial Chair in Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. She is also the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Graduate Education in the Moody College of Communication.

She has published numerous articles in journals such as Communication Monographs, Human Communication Research, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personal Relationships, and the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.
