Cultural Influences on Nonverbal Behavior: An Annotated Bibliography for Counseling Psychologists.
This bibliography for counseling psychologists focuses on differences in nonverbal behavior as an aspect of cross cultural psychotherapy. The introductory section discusses the purpose, scope and limitations of the report. Different theories of emotion (dimensional versus typological) are also discussed and classifications of nonverbal behavior are presented. The second section provides a discussion of the origin of human nonverbal behavior; subsections include a historical review of theories of nonverbal behavior including: emotional expression prior to Darwin; Darwin's contributions; the relativist stance and the influence of behaviorism; research by universalists; and current theorist debate. The 41 annotated citations from books, and newspaper and magazine articles review material on cultural patterns of kinesics (body motion), proxemics (orientation and distance between interacting people), and paralinguistic patterns (nonverbal vocalizations). The concluding section offers a summary, a review of research methods, and suggestions for future research. The report also includes a reference list. (WAS)
