New Psychology of Communication Classes Start Next Week

Why did my best friend act that way? Why don’t my parents ever understand?

Communication with and among teens has its own unique challenges! These issues will be tackled in the new, uniquely interactive  “Psychology of Communication” classes with popular humanities instructor Leila Leoncavallo! Ms Leoncavallo holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester where her research on memory received highest honors.

Students will examine theories and experiments pertaining to the psychology of communication. Topics will include group conformity, nonverbal communication, the art of listening, and perspective-taking. Students will put their knowledge into practice each week as they increase their understanding of friends and family, while improving their own interpersonal skills. This class is best suited for curious learners who enjoy observing other people, understanding the reasons behind puzzling human behavior, and learning new skills that they can apply to real life. The class will incorporate multi-sensory teaching techniques.
