Written for anyone who uses questioning in their daily affairs, "The Practice of Questioning" shows how questions and answers work in interpersonal communication. The book brings together theory, research and practice from a wide range of disciplines, and special attention is given to practical application. Particular attention is given to practical application. Particular attention is given to the use of questions in classrooms, courtrooms, psychotherapy medical clinics, personnel interviews, interrogation, journalism, and survey and opinion polls. Schemes of practice are outlined in detail and extensively illustrated by transcripts of actual question-answer exchanges in various practical contexts. Dillon goes on to describe further techniques for use in situations where the questioning seems not to be working well. His main focus, however, is on the many elements of questioning shown here at work in various settings. An understanding of theory and research on questioning in all fields is seen as the grounding for the practical examples.
