Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Findings show people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) do not display many cues to their mood, and raters tend to use more expressive cues in making judgments than were valid. Findings emphasize a need to help clients with PD produce verbal and nonverbal cues that can be accurately interpreted by others.
