Description - The Sourcebook of Nonverbal Measures by Valerie Lynn Manusov
Researchers who study nonverbal behavior have needed a cohesive discussion of research choices - specifically for the investigation of nonverbal phenomena. This volume addresses that need and aims to encapsulate the primary means by which researchers assess nonverbal cues, facilitating their use by others interested in studying nonverbal behavior. Editor Valerie Manusov collects both well-established and new measures used to research nonverbal behaviors, illustrating the broad spectrum of measures appropriate for use in nonverbal research. In addition to measures that can be used by other researchers with an interest in nonverbal cues, the book addresses issues involved conducting this research. Several chapters provide discussions of larger research "paradigms" into which a particular measure may be placed. Other chapters are devoted to research strategies that researchers have available to them to answer their research questions. The latter includes discussions to help researchers think through the array of choices that they have available to them and to show the strong connections between the types of answers one seeks and the means through which one may seek them.
Written by the creators of the measures - all of whom have strong reputations in this area - this book is an invaluable resource for researchers and students studying nonverbal behavior. Scholars and students in interpersonal communications, psychology, personal relationships, and related areas will find the book an essential research tool.
