Microexpressions are those subtle unspoken cues that alert us to the internal reality of another person. Whether its the narrowing of eyes, the tilting of the head, the pressing of lips, or the flaring of nostrils, these small behaviors send big messages.

From the desk of Dr. Jake...
The topic of microexpressions may sound geeky, or perhaps too complicated, or maybe too "clinical" to do any good int he real world. But I assure you, it is relevant to your daily life to a degree that few people comprehend!
The reality is that nearly every moment you're with another person, your right brain implicit processing system is constantly scanning a number of non-verbal cues. These include everything from body posture to vocal tone, from the slight uptick of the corners of the mouth to a reddening of the tip of the nose. Your right brain immediately interprets these signals and uses them to import additional meaning into the other person's words, or their silence!
As a couple therapist who has worked with folks from many place, I can tell you that these microexpressions are often what trigger intense reactions, activate traumatic memory, and cause painful moments of misattunement and disconnection.
But I can also tell you that when you harness your awareness of microexpressions, both your own and your partner's, you can radically shift the way you experience conversations. You can be intentional about the non-verbal messages you send in parallel to your words, and you can ask questions when your partner's verbal and non-verbal messages appear to be in conflict. In short, knowledge of microexpressions can save your relationship from a lot of pain!
As always, I hope to make this webinar fun and interactive and to give you as much value as I can!

Is the science of microexpressions real?
Dr. Jake is highly trained in psychobiological models of counseling and couple therapy, and these models are extensively based on the science of affect regulation.
Microexpressions are (usually) non-conscious, automatic reactions to shifts in our body's affective state brought on by what is being experienced in real time in relationships. Yes, the science is real!
Can learning microexpressions change a relationship?
Absolutely! Dr. Jake has successfully worked with couples from across the United States and around the world using these models for couple therapy. When working with couples, he first observes their microexpressions and then begins teaching them to read one another.
By making what is typically a non-conscious process conscious, these couple begin to pay more attention to each other, make fewer errors in their interpretations of each other, and experience greater degrees of connection.
Why do microexpressions matter at all?
They matter because — whether you know it or not — you and your partner are sending and receiving them already. Microexpressions are normal parts of human communication, but they are also typically non-conscious elements of communication.
This means that we are sending and receiving them unknowingly. Research has demonstrated that we actually rely more on these non-verbal cues for understanding a message than the actual words of the message themselves!
