Body language seminars are planned

Rhonda Hicks

Did you know that you make an impression on people within the first five seconds of meeting them without saying a word? Or that 85 percent of all United States companies do a handwriting analysis on job applications to determine what type of person filled out the application?

You can learn and exercise the Art of Body Language by attending seminars slated for April 22 and 29. Miss Julie Derobertis, 1996 National 4-H Congress delegate and program trainer, has planned and developed the seminars for youth, 12 years old and older, and adults who wish to learn handwriting analysis and what your handwriting says about you, how to take control in an interview and increase your chances of being hired, get people to “Yes” when they want to say “No,” and discover the signs of love. Participants will have the opportunity to purchase the book “Let Me See Your Body Talk” by best-selling author Jan Hargrave.

The first night’s workshop will deal with the personal aspect of body language and the second night will cover the professional aspect of body language. Each night’s seminar begins at 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School in the Gardnerville Ranchos.

A registration fee of $7 per participant will cover seminar materials and refreshments for both nights or $5 for one night. Completed registration forms and fees are due to the Douglas County office of Nevada Cooperative Extension by no later than April 21. Registration forms are available from the Douglas County Cooperative Extension Office, 1329 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville.
