Department of Communication graduate students presented their work at the annual Eastern Communication Convention in April 2022.
Emily Pfender, doctoral student in the Department of Communication, and Scott Caplan, professor of communication, are authors of “Nonverbal immediacy cues and impression formation in video therapy,” published in Counselling Psychology Quarterly. The increased use of video-mediated communication (VMC) due to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to widespread acceptance of mediated healthcare appointments. Mental health care is one area in which researchers might examine the effects of VMC. This study employed an experiment to test the relative influence of video therapists’ eye contact and gesture on a patient. The results contribute to understanding how nonverbal cues impact health outcomes in VMC.
