When working psychodynamically with adults, there is a great deal to be observed in their non-verbal communications — how they enter the room, how they sit, what they wear and whether and how they fiddle with things. There may also on some occasions be more large-scale behaviour that requires attention — for example, if someone jumps up and paces the room, or hides their face, or perhaps even throws something in fury or walks out. However, these more extreme events will be relatively rare in adult work, where for the most part clients spend their sessions talking.
