Survey of chıldren’s novels in terms of interpersonal communıcatıon conflıcts
Interpersonal communication conflicts seen in children’s novels have been addressed in terms of Harary and Batell’s conflict classification inspired by the graph analysis. In this conflict classification, there are eight basic types of interpersonal communication conflicts: effective conflict, passive conflict, conflict of existence, overall rejection, prejudicial conflict, conflict of density, partial conflict and alteration. The method of this study is document review. Within the scope of the study, three randomly chosen children’s novels have been described in terms of interpersonal communication conflicts. The results have been digitized as much as possible and presented by being supported with a chart. The conclusions extrapolated from the results have been discussed with the literature and suggestions have been offered to those concerned. © The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology.
