Nonverbal Communication: Understand the Power of Body Language


Course description

Would you like to understand more about developing effective body language, and how nonverbal communication can impact our social encounters? This interactive, weekend course looks at skills to develop confidence, persuasiveness and connection with others. Course topics will include: ‘reading’ and ‘production’ skills in the areas of facial expression; paralanguage (speed, pitch, tone, volume of voice); gestures; eye contact; and personal space. Participants will also review the way body language affects our own emotions and reactions to events.

Instructor: Jason Cressey (PhD) lectures for UVic's Department of Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies, and is director of "Motivation in Mind" corporate seminars and motivational training. He specializes in body language, interspecies communication, social skills, interpersonal relationships and cultural differences.
