Judging Others: Improving Communication through Person Perception

Professor Danielle Hartigan
Location: LaCava 325ABC
Cost: $20 per seat, 5 seats for $80
Making judgments and predictions of others’ emotions, attitudes, and intentions from verbal and nonverbal cues is essential to effective communication. Social psychologists call the ability to recognize and accurately interpret another person’s verbal and nonverbal behaviors- person perception. In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to assess their own ability to accurately judge others using standardized tests of person perception. Participants will then engage in an interactive and evidence-based person perception training program. The session will end with an opportunity to reflect on their own ability and the value of person perception in their professional interactions.
