Nonverbal communication by Albert Mehrabian( Book )

27 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though our society subtly discourages the verbal expression of emotions, most of us, in ostensibly conforming to our roles, nevertheless manage to express likes, dislikes, status differences, personalities, as well as weaknesses in nonverbal ways. Using vocal expressions; gestures, postures, and movements, we amplify, restrict, or deny what our words say to one another, and even say some things with greater facility and efficiency than with words. In this new, multidimensional approach to the subject of nonverbal communication Albert Mehrabian brings together a great deal of original work which includes descriptions of new experimental methods that are especially suited to this field, detailed findings of studies scattered throughout the literature, and most importantly, the integration of these findings within a compact framework. The framework starts with the analysis of the meanings of various nonverbal behaviors and is based on the fact that more than half of the variance in the significance of nonverbal signals can be described in terms of the three orthogonal dimensions of positiveness, potency or status, and responsiveness. These three dimensions not only constitute the semantic space for nonverbal communication, but also help to identify groups of behaviors relating to each, to describe characteristic differences in nonverbal communication, to analyze and generate rules for the understanding of inconsistent messages, and to provide researchers with new and comprehensive measures for description of social behavior. This volume will be particularly valuable for both the professional psychologist and the graduate student in psychology. It will also be of great interest to professionals in the fields of speech and communication, sociology, anthropology, and psychiatry

Basic behavior modification by Albert Mehrabian( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 1978 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph examines the component parts of behavior modification, initially defining the problem behavior and drawing a difference between specific observable behaviors (the focus of behavior modification), and the interest of Freudian and similar psychologies in unobservable internal processes. Instrumental learning related to shaping in behavior modification, schedules of reinforcement--with an emphasis on variable ratio schedules, extinction, negative reinforcement, positive reinforcement, modeling and prompting, satiation, negative practice and group reinforcement--are discussed as behavior modification techniques. Creating environments conducive to change considers the control of behavior by modifying stimuli likely to influence specific behaviors. Stimulus generalization, discrimination learning, stimulus control (in which dieting and sleeping are offered as examples), reciprocal inhibition, forced exposure desensitization, and rehearsal are discussed from a practical point of view. The final chapter outlines a method of organized approach to difficult problems, and involves (1) the identification of component problems, (2) their ordering in terms of levels of severity, and (3) solution of component problems starting with the easiest and progressing to the most difficult.
