Verbal and non-verbal communications are the basic hallmarks of human interaction, from a psychology perspective. With verbal communication, human beings engage in conversations that express thoughts, ideas, emotions and observations.

Verbal Communication Is Powerful

  • Within the scope of verbal communications, people enter into relationships, teach concepts, have conflicts, and establish boundaries. The possibilities and variables of verbal communications are almost endless, from a psychological perspective; in fact, verbal communications can be incredibly intense, leading to violence, murder, marriage, or war. However, at other times, verbal communications will be benign, as with small talk and chit chat that is simply a social nicety.
Non-verbal Communication Tells A Story

  • The glances, body language, and extended eye contact of non-verbal communications are more subtle than verbal communications. From a psychological standpoint, the signals sent through non-verbal communications may be misinterpreted, leading to confusion or "mixed signals." However, some non-verbal communications, such as "dirty looks" or come-hither glances, may be almost unmistakable. Humans use non-verbal communications to get their point across, without actually committing to verbal statements.
Experts in the field of psychology study all forms of human interaction to gain a greater understanding of the way people relate to one another. By analyzing human interactions and assigning psychological meanings to verbal and non-verbal communications, psychologists learn how to treat patients by helping them to refine their interactions with other people, and to correct problems that may hinder social skills (such as pressured speech or hyperactivity).

Treatment for personality disorders, such as narcissism or avoidant personality disorder, may also feature assessments of verbal and non-verbal communications; in some cases, medication of cognitive therapy may be used to change the way a patient relates to the world around him or her. Today, treatment for social difficulties can result in great gains for patients, as they use the skills and experience of psychologists to improve their social lives and achieve their potential.
