Relational Transgressions
Sooner or later, even the strongest relationships hit a bumpy patch. Some problems arise from outside forces: work, finances, competing relationships, and so on. Relational transgressions happen when one partner violates the explicit or implicit terms of the relationship, letting the other one down in some important way.
Types of Relational Transgressions: There are several ways to transgress in a relationship:
Lack of Commitment
Failure to honor important obligations (e.g., financial, emotional, task-related)
Self-serving dishonesty
Unfaithfulness
Distance
Physical separation (beyond what is necessary)
Psychological separation (avoidance, ignoring)
Disrespect
Criticism (especially in front of third parties)
Problematic Emotions
Jealousy
Unjustified suspicion
Rage
Aggression
Verbal hostility
Physical violence
As you think about transgressions you’ve experienced, you will recognize that there are several dimensions to each one. Some are deliberate. Some are unintentional. Some are a one time thing, verses incremental or repetitive.
1. Discuss a time someone has relationally transgressed against you. Was it a minor or major transgression (see pg. 305)
2. What advice does your textbook give with regards to how to handle the situation?
3. Do you think the advice would work in your situation? Why or why not?

“A Day Without Electronic Media” 3-4 pages
We live in a media saturated world, yet most of us don’t consider the effect it has on our lives. According to Danna Walker, Professor of Communications at American University, “Many of you are what researchers call “millennials”, those born between 1980 and 2000. Your generation will constitute the largest generation in American history. You will outnumber baby boomers by as much as 33%. Most of you grew up with computers and television in your home. You started life with VCR’s, CD’s, digital video, and MP3s. You were the first generation to link up to cell phones, instant messaging, and texting. Personal computers came of age when you were born and you grew up with the World Wide Web and e-mail. Not to mention Nintendo, Game Boy, Sony PlayStation, GameCube and Xbox. Yet although you are emotionally attached, educated, and savvy consumers of electronic media you don’t think much about it.”
In this experiment you will discover how a complete ban on all digital electronic media effects your communication with others for better or for worse.
