Nonverbal communication is an essential aspect of human interaction that often goes unnoticed, but holds a significant impact on our relationships, emotional development, and self-worth. This form of communication, which includes gestures, facial expressions, and body language, is a critical component in the social and cognitive development of children, shaping how they understand and connect with others from their earliest years.
To help shed light on this important topic, Ph.D. student Daniel Nault, affiliated with the Child and Adolescent Development Research Group at Queen’s University, will be exploring the role of nonverbal communication in child development during his upcoming talk, “Growing Up Human: It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It!” taking place on February 21 from 7-8 p.m. via Zoom.
According to Jake Miller, Librarian for Adult Programming, this event is a must-attend for anyone seeking to understand and connect with the next generation. “Communicating and understanding information is critical to good health and survival,” said Miller. “Unlocking the secrets of nonverbal communication will deepen our relationships and lead to a brighter future for all.”
This interactive and educational talk is open to all who are interested in learning more about the importance of nonverbal communication and how it affects children. Register for the event online or by calling 613-549-8888.
Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of nonverbal communication and take the first step towards improving your relationships with the next generation.
