Leading Scholars Blend Cutting-Edge Science with Practical Experience to Reveal Evidence-Based Best Practices

Edited by three leading authorities on nonverbal behavior, this book examines state-of-the-art research and knowledge regarding nonverbal behavior and applies that scientific knowledge to a broad range of fields. The editors present a true scientist–practitioner model, blending cutting-edge behavioral science with real-world practical experience, thus making this text the first of its kind to merge theoretical and practical worlds. This book is a valuable resource for students and professionals as it explores the science behind the practice and reveals how other professionals have effectively incorporated nonverbal communication into their fields.

This book serves as an excellent text or supplement for courses/seminars in nonverbal behavior, nonverbal communication, human interaction, profiling, security management, and homeland security, as well as courses in interviewing and qualitative analysis.

A fantastic book for anyone working in face to face situations with others. Allowing you to read body language and divert situations that may arise. Giving examples of body language and tonalities that could be construed as offensive, it gives insight to how people intergrade with each other in an unconscious manner.
