Understanding Nonverbal Communications

This unique ninety-minute, virtual presentation takes a fresh look at what we know about nonverbal communications and how they can be used in a professional, clinical or personal setting. The training focuses on those human behaviors that professionals must recognize which have a high reliability and are useful in assessing others. It will also provide a roadmap for conducting better, more empathic interviews and interpersonal communication.

The training exposes behaviors (some often ignored) that are useful in understanding the feelings, thoughts, desires, intentions, preferences, fears, and concerns of others. It will examine each area of the body that may be helpful in decoding the true thoughts and emotions of others. Gestures, facial expressions and body movement will be examined within their context for meaning. Additionally, the workshop will focus on other nonverbals, including the tone of voice and cadence of speech which have been shown to establish greater rapport and trust. 

The workshop will also identify those nonverbals which do not have clear meaning and from which behavior is often misinterpreted. The training will also explore the limits of nonverbals, including the danger of trying to use nonverbal communications to detect deception.
