Communicating Nonverbally with Inmates

Communicating with inmates is a critical part of a correctional officer's job. Communicating is divided into two parts: verbal and nonverbal communication. Both are equally important and require a set of skills that must be mastered. This course is designed to enhance the nonverbal communication skills of correctional officers and other staff who interact with inmates. It will examine each of the elements of nonverbal communication and how they affect staff-inmate communication. It will explore the techniques of Positioning, Posturing, Observing, and Listening. Verbal communication skills are examined in our Verbally Communicating with Inmates course.
