The Power of Non-Verbal Communication
May 23, 2022
Hosted by Arleen Maiorano, LCSW-R, LP
In this podcast, my guest Jennifer Tantia and I will discuss the power of non-verbal communication between couples, and the ways we can communicate with facial expressions, body gestures, and body posture. We will discuss the importance of bringing awareness to these embodied experiences in the present moment, both for ourselves and for our partners, and also the importance of being aware of our instinctive reactions and checking out our assumptions.

I am a couples therapist and believe deeply in the healing power of relationships. I believe that we repeat our childhood trauma with the person we connect to and love, and that if we learn to manage our reactions differently, we can begin to heal that trauma. To do this, we have to hear our partner's side, instead of instinctively defending ourselves and fighting for our side. Of course, this has to go both ways, and we then heal when we mutually experience the generosity of the other.
