Still Face Experiment

Sep 22, 2014

Non-verbal communication is comprised of between 50-90% of our message. Our ability to convey our message non-verbally begins at a very young age. This experiment conducted by Dr. Edward Tronick, Harvard Professor and Director of the University of Massachusetts-Boston Infant-Parent Mental Health program reinforces this finding. Watch as this mother and baby connect through non-verbal cues, and then what happens when the mother withholds her own attending behavior and the child does not receive the confirmation she desires.
