Nonverbal Communication
An Applied Approach

Additional resources:

July 2020 | 236 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Nonverbal Communication: An Applied Approach teaches students the fundamentals of nonverbal communication in a way that helps them see the connections between the principles they learn and the everyday communication they perform and interpret. Nonverbal Communication: An Applied Approach 1st Edition has taken a narrative style and applied approach that is informed by the important theories and research-driven knowledge of this interdisciplinary area of study. Jonathan M. Bowman's approach encourages students to understand the relevancy of nonverbal codes right away, instead of waiting until the second half of the course to explore applications. Bowman also brings in a unique focus on diversity and social justice, demonstrating how nonverbal communication shapes and molds how we interact in a diverse society.
