ObjectiveThis session provides information on understanding the link between physiology and behaviors associated with stress, specifically pre-attack signs.
Description"Fundamental Body Language" is based upon the physiological "fight, flight, or freeze (F3) mechanism." As a standalone class, "Fundamental Body Language" provides insight into the physiology and psychology of both the learner and the learner's interactions with other people. This is a fast-paced four-hour class divided into two distinct halves. The first half explains the human physiological responses to stress, from simply lying or during the involvement of a critical life-threatening event. The second half of the class outlines specific F3 indicators. These indicators are divided into seven categories: body posture, hand movements, eyes, facial, body function, vocal, and proxemics. Each indicator is explained and its origin and association with F3 is explained. There are over 50 indicators explained in all. This class is very informative and very entertaining with an array of multimedia to engage every type of learner. The presenter interacts heavily with the audience.
