Micro Expressions & Nonverbal Communication - Part I (MEX.1)

MEX.1 Study Programme Entry Requirements: Anyone may apply to enroll.

MEX.1 Study Programme Description:

In the MEX.1 study programme you will learn about Micro Expressions, the 7 Universal Emotions, Nonverbal Communication & Body Language.

The importance of understanding and correctly interpreting Micro Expressions and Nonverbal Communication can not be stressed enough. It is by no means possible to immediately be accurate with truth, lie & deception detection without first understanding the basic fundamentals.

Being able to identify a Micro Expression does not mean that you will be able to correctly interpret if a person is busy lying, misleading or deceiving you. They may be terrified just by the thought of being interviewed by you.

In this course the difference between lying about feelings and feelings about lying will be discussed for a greater understanding of the subject.

People can show fear, but it can be the fear being caught when they did something wrong or the fear of being disbelieved when the person thinks he or she may be falsely accused.

Misinterpretations may have devastating effects for the person being interviewed.

It is never our aim to try and make it difficult for our students. We however need to be sure that you have a good overall understanding of what you have learned.

We monitor and follow progress with all the students. You are not just supplied with study material and left on your own. Student support is available to all students.
