BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

David Givens began studying "body language" for his Ph.D. in anthropology at the University of Washington in Seattle. He served as Resident Anthropologist and Director of Information Services and Programs at the American Anthropological Association in Washington, D.C. from 1985-97, and is currently developing the Center for Nonverbal Studies (CNS), located in Spokane, Washington, and La Jolla, California. His expertise lies in nonverbal communication, anthropology and the brain. Givens's book, Love Signals, is a popular, often-cited study of courtship ritual and nonverbal rapport. Two of Givens's academic articles on nonverbal communication are recognized as international classics by the Max Planck Institute in Austria. Givens and neuroscientist Paul D. MacLean introduced the word "isopraxism" (the reptilian principle of mimicking) into the English language, as announced by the executive editor of the American Heritage Dictionary, Anne H. Soukanov, in the Atlantic Monthly in 1993. David Givens was a member of a team of anthropologists, linguists, astronomers, nuclear physicists, psychologists and materials scientists charged by the U.S. Department of Energy with designing a marker to warn human beings 10,000 years in the future about the dangers of nuclear waste (see WIPP). Givens has been invited to speak on nonverbal communication by the Smithsonian Institution, National Academy of Sciences, New York Life Insurance Company, South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association, Washington State Administrator for the Courts and numerous other groups. He has done communications consulting for Sandia National Laboratories, the Bechtel Group, U.S. Department of Energy, and others; his ideas on nonverbal communication have been written about in magazines such as Omni, Harper's, the New Yorker and U.S. News & World Report, and in newspapers such as the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times. Author of many reports, magazine and encyclopedia articles, Givens recently completed his second book, The Nonverbal Dictionary of Gestures, Signs, and Body Language Cues.
