Nonverbal Behavior in Clinical Settings

Edited by Pierre Philippot, Robert S. Feldman, and Erik J. Coats

Series in Affective Science

The volume is organized into three main sections preceded by a one-chapter orientation to the area that provides a general overview of the current debates in the area. The first section, Nonverbal Behavior in Regulatory and Clinical Processes, presents the nonverbal processes involved in emotion regulation and in social skills in everyday life and in therapeutic intervention, with a special focus on therapeutic bounds. The next sections, Nonverbal Behavior in Negative Life Events, shows the relationships between nonverbal behavior and challenging negative life conditions, such as bereavement, anxiety, or brain damage. The last section, Nonverbal Behavior in Specific Clinical Conditions, examines nonverbal behavior in specific psychopathological disorders, such as alcoholism, depression, schizophrenia, or alcoholism.
