We communicate simultaneously on two levels, verbal and non-verbal. Usually the patient is unaware of their own non-verbal communications. This Unit will teach you how to notice and interpret the patient’s unique non-verbal communications within the context of their therapy session. The Unit includes learning how to recognize and interpret muscle tension, repeated fidgeting, hesitation, blocking movements, metaphorical movements, fight flight response, heel digging, avoided dates, key words, patient analogue marking and content avoiding.
Colonial slavery shaped modern Britain and we all still live with its legacies. The slave-owners were one very important means by which the fruits of slavery were transmitted to metropolitan Britain. We believe that research and analysis of this group are key to understanding the extent and the limits of slavery's role in shaping British history and leaving lasting legacies that reach into the present. The stories of enslaved men and women, however, are no less important than those of slave-owners, and we hope that the database produced in the first two phases of the project, while at present primarily a resource for studying slave-owners, will also provide information of value to those researching enslaved people.
