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-the first of its kind to merge theoretical and practical worlds. The observations of the practitioners who share their insights and experience will inspire and generate many new research ideas. This book is a valuable resource for students, practitioners and professionals to discover the science behind the practice and to see how other professionals have incorporated nonverbal communication into practice.
