People Skills: Communicating without Words (Enhanced DVD)
This film demonstrates how we as people communicate in many ways that don't involve our words. Our appearance can speak for us even when we don't. Our face can convey emotions, even those we do not realize that we are expressing to another person. Likewise, our body language can indicate our attitude, even if it is contrary to what we are trying to say. Our tone can also help to convey our message or let our listeners in on the hidden message behind what we are saying. Position, like where you stand or sit while you speak, can also give your listener a certain impression of you and what you are saying.
This film provides an introduction to these nonverbal communication tools and how to interpret the messages these convey.
This film has a run time of 14 minutes and is closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
