Advanced Nonverbal Communication

This course is fully booked (no waiting list)

This course explores the ways humans communicate without using words, including our gestures, facial expressions, posture, and physical appearance. We will especially focus on how to read nonverbal cues from others and how to become more aware of what you are really saying with your own nonverbal cues. These skills are applicable anywhere from the job interview and work environment to interpersonal relationships.
