“I can’t hear what you’re saying… because of how you’re saying it.”
Communication is more than just words and tone of voice. The direction you face, how you hold your hands, tilt your head, raise your eyebrows … are all a part of the communication experience. Knowing how to correctly and effectively integrate your body language into your interactions will greatly increase the chances of successfully sending the message you want to send.
The Utah Foster Care Foundation is excited and proud to announce the Second Annual UFCF Symposium on Trauma & Attachment — 2011: A Closer Look. Equally exciting is this year’s keynote speaker, Janine Driver — owner and CEO of the Body Language Institute in Washington, D.C. She is the New York Times Best Selling Author of “You Say More Than You Think” and is nationally recognized as one of the leading experts on the meaning of body language in communication.
Her dynamic and insightful presentation will focus on how positively combining words with body language will help to get the results you want as well as decrease stress and anxiety in your relationships. Focusing your efforts on what you want people to do, rather telling them what not to do, will give you a better chance of sending the right message and achieving the desired results.
Don’t miss this chance to learn more about and become better at understanding an integral, but sometimes over-looked aspect of our everyday communications. While extremely helpful for parents, social workers and therapists, this opportunity is valuable for anyone who wants to learn how to make their communications more positive, productive and effective.
