Nonverbal communication is one of my favourite areas of social communication. Watching the light bulb go off in my client’s heads when it clicks is so rewarding. After direct teaching of tone of voice, facial expression and body language, I always like to show clients how impactful nonverbal communication can be and how our communication is more than just what we say.
When you ask your clients how they feel, do they only ever reply with sad, mad, happy? I have found that a huge challenge when working I always provide parents with this article that helps adults to enhance children’s emotional vocabulary but lately, I have also been building a Book of Emotions. Here’s how I do this.
Have you ever asked a child about his or her day and were met with a blank stare and/or an “I don’t know?” Have you ever had a parent say to you, “I ask her what she did at school but she never tells me!” You are not alone!
