In the previous chapters we examined the role of nonverbal behavior in various social psychological processes. Of necessity, these discussions have tended to be rather focused, and as a result, the commonalities across these various processes may not have been apparent to the reader. Nevertheless, it is possible to provide some theoretical integrations across our earlier divergent concerns. In developing this discussion it may be useful to review briefly several theoretical explanations before describing a new comprehensive approach to nonverbal behavior.
