Language is both informative and expressive. It is the expressive component that elicits changes in emotion, sensation, “state,” and physiology; the words only convey part of the message. We will study the effective use of prosody, proximity, gesture, expression and context, and how those channels can be woven into the process of communication to create dramatic moments that empower effective clinical outcomes. Lecture, demonstration, small group practice.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Define “microdynamic” gift-wrapping.
  2. Indicate two ways in which paraverbal methods increase therapeutic impact.
  3. Given a patient, indicate how to use gestures and sounds to increase impact.
  4. Define “utilization” and indicate how it is effective.
