Reading Emotions in Others

This workshop trains participants to read three (3) types of facial expressions: macroexpressions, microexpressions and subtle expressions. Learn More...

Our research has shown that the facial expressions associated with certain emotions are universal – they are expressed in the same way regardless of race, culture, ethnicity, gender, age or religion. The Reading Emotions in Others workshop trains participants to read three (3) types of facial expressions:
  • Macroexpressions – those that occur spontaneously when individuals have no reason to manage or modify their expression;
  • Microexpressions – those that occur when individuals conceal or repress emotion, and;
  • Subtle expressions- those that are of lower intensity

Participants learn how to:
  • Improve their understanding of emotions and be able to distinguish emotions from moods
  • Understand which aspects of emotion are universal versus which are specific to each culture, ethnic or language group
  • Understand how to use recognition of facial expressions – especially microexpressions – to understand what a person is likely to do next
  • Improve their ability to recognize the macro-, micro- and subtle facial expressions of emotion

We work with participants to develop an in-depth understanding of the nature and function of emotion and facial expressions – including their scientific evidentiary basis – using the Microexpression Recognition (MiX) and Subtle Expression (SubX) training. During the workshop we will use context specific video, practice of live emotions, discussion and role play and other simulations to reinforce what participants have learned and to give them real-life examples of how to use their new skills.

Reading Nonverbal Behavior

This typical half day or full day workshop helps people identify and understand the various channels of nonverbal behaviors and their functions. Learn More...

When people focus solely on verbal communication, we have found that they miss the vast bulk of the information provided by posture, gesture, facial expression, gaze direction and gait – all expressions of nonverbal behaviors. This workshop improves participant’s understanding of nonverbal behavior by helping them identify and understand the various channels of nonverbal behaviors and their functions. Participants develop their ability to recognize signs of emotion as well as what psychologists call illustrators, manipulators, emblems and conversation regulators.
Participants learn how to:
  • Improve their knowledge about illustrators, manipulators, regulators, emblems and emotional signals in multiple channels including the face, voice, posture and gesture
  • Identify and understand nonverbal behaviors in everyday situations
We train participants on the nature and function of nonverbal behavior using real-life examples. Since emotions and facial expressions are a major part of the world of nonverbal behavior, this workshop incorporates content from the Reading Emotions in Others workshop.

Identifying Signals of Deadly Intent

This workshop aids trainees in quickly identifying the nonverbal cues associated with imminent attack. Learn More...

Many individuals are exposed to potential violence or assault in their professional lives. Our most recent studies have allowed for the identification of facial expressions that have been reliably associated with imminent attack or physical assault. This course aids trainees in quickly identifying the nonverbal cues associated with imminent attack, allowing for a few seconds extra time for defensive or evasive courses of action.
Participants learn how to:
  • Understand the basics of emotion and the scientific basis of facial expressions of emotion
  • Improve their ability to identify these expressions quickly and to differentiate them from other similar signals that are distracters.
