Adult Roles And Responsibilities
Strand 2Students will identify effective communication in interpersonal relationships.
Standard 2Identify positive and negative nonverbal communication.
The majority of our communication is nonverbal. Nonverbal communication is often referred to as body language. Body language includes facial expression, posture, eye contact, gestures and many other subtle signals that we all interpret subconsciously. Body language is something that is learned. When there is a conflict between verbal and non-verbal communication we always believe the nonverbal. Culture, regional area and even gender can influence nonverbal communication.
Body Language Day
Our comfort level around people is greatly affected by distance and space. Distance and space are a part of our nonverbal communication/body language.
