Relational Dialectics Theory (By Leslie Baxter and Barbara Montgomery)

There are three approaches, namely: 
1. Monologist Approach 
That is an approach looked at the relation of contradiction That Framed one of conflict.
2. Dualistic approach
That is an approach saw a contradiction separately
3. Dialectical approach
That is a viewpoint maintains two polar opposites.
Case in point:
Joe and Nana Were lovers, they want had a relationship ever since junior high. That They Had planned one day they want will from work together in a company. But Things did not go according to Expectations. Nana changed from Marketing Managed marketing at the company while Joe only be OB at the company.

There are four basic assumptions in RDT Assessing relational life. Among Them:
1. Relationships are not linear.
Relationships in the RDT viewed as a relationship consisting of fluctuation Between Desires contradictory, and note the parts That are linear.
2. Characterized by the existence of associated life changes.
According to Baxter and Montgomery's view, the process or change a relationship refers to the qualitative and quantitative movement over time and the contradictions occur in living related That. One's relationship right now, with A Few months ago Experienced That the changes are not linear.
3. Contradiction is a fundamental fact of life related.
That assumes RDT contradictions are an inevitable fact of life related. RDT so it wants to maintain the existing contradictions in life and trying to reconcile related.
4. Communication is very Important in Managing and Negotiating the contradictions in the relationship.
In the show a contradiction, one needs to Communicate. Social reality of the contradictions Produced and reproduced by the communication action by social actors. Communication Can be verbal and non-verbal.

Response to Relational Dialectic Theory
This section studies how individuals Cope with the due-existing retail contradict contradictions relate is life. According to Jameson (2004) politeness is one way to resolve the dialectical tension. While Baxter (1988) Identified four strategies to address the dialectical tensions; cyclical substitution, segmentation, selection, and integration
Substitution of cyclic (Cyclic alternation)
Occurs when people choose one of two Opposite Things at certain times, and replaced by another star at another time. Is so with cyclical turns in response to dialectical tensions That refers to changes over time.
Segmentation (segmentation)
Separating the arena to reduce the difference of the two contradict Things Each other. Segmentation refers to the changes a result of a context.
Selection (selection)
Give a decision against two Things Which contradict Each other. Selection refers on giving priority to the existing oppositions.
Integration (Integration)
Involves the synthesis of the two Things That opposite. The integration consists of:
Neutralize (neutralizing)
Individual try this way to select one of the best among the two polar contradict Each other. This response refers in Compromise to the two opposition
Repeat frame (re framing)
In this way individuals attempt to transform the existing will of dialectic certain way, making it the second opposition seemed not contradict Each other again conflicting.
Disqualify (Disqualifying)
Response was trying to neutralize dialectic by giving exemptions on Some issues from the general pattern.
