NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION (NVC)

the act of communicating data without the utilization of words. Non-verbal communication takes place by way of gestures, tone of voice, body language, facial expressions, and other tangible signs of approbation, mood, outlook, and so forth. Some of that might neccesitate knowledge of the society or subsociety to comprehend. With regard to psychotherapy, clients' non-verbal communication can be as imperative to note as their verbal communication.

NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION (NVC): "When a person responds with a yes or no answer to something, but moves their head in the non-corresponding manner (such as saying yes but shaking one's head back and forth as though one is saying no), this often indicates the presence of dishonesty."
