Nonverbal Expression of Psychological States in Psychiatric Patients
This chapter addresses the question as to how depression as a homogeneous affective state correlates with changes in behavior of the nonverbal repertoire and investigates the notion of a dissociation of coordinated behavior as a characteristic of psychoses. Evidence was found for a tendency of the nonverbal behavior to dissociate from verbal communication in psychoses. The individual specificity of behavioral changes found in depressed patients points to an inconsistency with regard to the universality of expressive behavior.
