Nonverbal Communication : Insights, Importance in Healthcare Settings & Social Influences Paperback / softback

Edited by Celia D. Park


Non-verbal communication between healthcare providers and recipients are mutually constructed, culturally intricate, contextually dependent, and socially affective.

In healthcare settings, both patients and physicians use nonverbal communication (eg: paralinguistic, kinesic, and proxemic cues) to convey their thoughts apart from verbal questions and answers, with the former describing their medical history and health issues and the latter providing medical advice and helpful treatment plans.

Chapter One examines the unique role intercultural nonverbal communication plays in healthcare settings.

In Chapter Two, patients with anorexia nervosa were studied in terms of whether specific interactive relationship patterns could be observed through nonverbal interactive behavior and, in particular, the facial expressions of emotions.

Chapter Three covers the importance of nonverbal interactions of veterinary authorities in emergency exercise and random controls at public health borders.

Chapter Four surveyed how the action of putting away one's mobile phone is interpreted as a form of nonverbal communication.
