If you think you have a good handle on the intentional body language your characters use on the page but want to create more depth, greater subtext, clearer messages for your readers, then consider EMOTIONAL BODY LANGUAGE...a look at nuances that can make all the difference between so-so characterization and great characterization. Along with some of the subtle, but oh so fun differences between the body language of men and that of women, you’ll learn:
* The differences between aggressive and defensive body language
* Dominant and Submissive body signals
* Negative body messages
* Open, closed or relaxed positions
* Attentive and Power body language
* Leadership body messages
* Reading deception through body language
* Non-verbal greetings
