This text offers a comprehensive and critical approach to nonverbal communication, but keeps the material accessible by offering personal narratives that help students better understand the importance of nonverbal communication in their every day lives.In order to present a balanced approach to the subject, the text is divided into three sections.

Part One offers an introduction of key concepts and principles; Part Two presents the channels and functions of nonverbal systems; and Part Three covers skills that teach students to recognize nonverbal communication in daily, intimate, workplace, and mediated or electronic encounters. Each chapter opens with learning objectives that help students identify major ideas. In addition, students broaden their understanding through additional readings, self-assessments, quizzes, and observation exercises.

  • New! Every chapter includes the latest research and findings.
  • New! Updated Exercise and Reading boxes directly correlate to experiences in nonverbal communication.
