Paul Ekman received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Adelphi University (1958) after a one-year internship at the Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute, University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He served two years as First Lieutenant and chief psychologist at Fort Dix, New Jersey, then returned to Langley Porter (UCSF) where he became professor of psychology in the UCSF medical school in 1972, retiring in 2004. Ekman’s research started in the late 1950’s, focusing on hand movements and gesture. It wasn’t until 1965 that he became interested in facial expression and emotion after receiving a grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the Department of Defense to examine cross-cultural studies of nonverbal behavior. In 1967 and 1968, Ekman traveled to Papua New Guinea (photograph at right) to further study nonverbal behavior of the Fore people, an isolated, Stone Age culture located in the South East Highlands. His research provided the strongest evidence to date that Darwin, not Margaret Mead, was correct in claiming facial expressions are universal. Ekman then developed, with W. Friesen, the first and only comprehensive tool for objectively measuring facial movement the Facial Action Coding System (FACS), published in 1978, and revised in 2003 with J. Hager as third author. FACS remains the gold standard for identifying any movement the face can make, free of interpretive inferences. Ekman then teamed with Terry Sejnowski to show that neural networks could be used to have computer based facial measurements. That work still continues under the company Emotient for which Dr. Ekman serves as an Advisory Board member. Emotient is the leading authority in facial expression analysis. Their software translates facial expressions into actionable information, thereby enabling companies to develop emotion-aware technologies and to create new levels of customer engagement, research, and analysis.

Hola. I’m Blanca Cobb. I’ve been a people watcher since I was a little girl. From a distance, I’d watch people to get a sense of who was friendly, trustworthy, and approachable. I learned early on that people try to hide what they feel. But, if you pay close attention to the way they move their bodies and react in situations, they can’t hide their feelings. They unknowingly reveal who they are.
This is the power of body language. Silent messages are more credible than spoken words. If you know what to look for and how to respond to body language, then you can connect with anyone. And in business and in life, this is your ticket to happiness, success, and peace.
In business, you can talk about the benefits of your products and services all you want. But, clients have to connect with you as a person before they buy.
In life, you can tell your romantic partner all the ways you love them. But, if they don’t feel connected to you, then there’s no relationship.
With family, you can give your kids advice, but if they don’t feel connected to you, then they’re gonna ignore you.
What’s more painful than having dead-end relationships – where you hate going home or you hate going to work?
My goal is to teach you how to create the relationships that you want so you get what you want. It all starts with of a body language connection. Let me show you how.
