Nonverbal Communication
An Applied Approach

Second Edition


July 2024 | 288 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Nonverbal Communication: An Applied Approach, Second Edition 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 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. This 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. Author Jonathan 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. The Second Edition includes updated examples, a new Upgrade feature box examining the impact of digital experiences across the course of the lifespan, and updated key terms, guiding and closing questions, citations, photos, and figures.
