Comfort vs. Discomfort – Joe Navarro

Posted on

NGSS_LVNV_TORON780

Las Vegas Pre-Registration Closing May 31st, 2016.

Body language expert Joe Navarro says that since our emotional brains work with our bodies to avoid danger, those who work in schools and other public service professions must learn to read comfort/discomfort cues.

Watch Joe Navarro describe how to interpret comfort/discomfort cues.

Navarro explains that watching for comfort and discomfort behaviors can help professionals assess for feelings, thoughts and intentions.  Knowledge of these “behavioral markers” can help determine what a student or parent may be thinking and what reactions to expect from them.

A New York Times bestselling author, Joe Navarro will deliver a plenary session entitled The Power of Nonverbal Communication in Education and a keynote session entitled Dangerous Personalities at the NextGen School Safety Conference in Las Vegas.

The 2016 NextGen School Safety Conference is coming to Las Vegas and Toronto as part of 2016 Innovative Schools Summits in each city!  Now in its second year, the NextGen School Safety Conference will focus on a variety of K-12 safety topics including avoiding intruder episodes, preventing student injuries and reducing worker comp claims.  Register Today!
