"Just thought I would let you all know that we just completed our first laughter therapy session. We had 10 patients total, kind of a small group but we wanted to start out that way. Everyone had a blast. Grace commented that she had never seen a couple of the patients smile like that before AND one of our constant 'take-me-to-bed patients' asked if she could stay up until after supper. That was a miracle in and of itself." ~K.P., CLL, Physical Therapist, South Carolina

Don’t let your dogged determination kill your sense of fun. An element of playfulness will make you more creative, more satisfied, and, yes, more productive, too.” Psychology Today

Nearly 7,000 Individuals Have Already Completed This Course In North America

Laughter is a basic human function that delivers positive benefits for those who laugh as well as those around them. This innovative program is not a comedic event but a unique workshop based on scientific evidence, designed to teach anyone simple practical techniques they can use to bring the benefits of laughter to their environment without jokes or comedy.

The course provides a uniquely joyful tool box for positive thinking, positive emotions & a healthy, balanced life in business, healthcare, education, senior services, and workplaces.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVE: Participants will be able to use this unique method to increase employee engagement and morale leading to improved effort and commitment; to improve interpersonal relations helping to improve teamwork and productivity; to reduce stress which improves creativity and reduces absenteeism; to identify emotional and attitudinal factors that improve health, happiness & life satisfaction.


Lively discussion,
expert instructors, experiential exercises, and a fast-pace help students absorb the required knowledge and acquire the particular skills. The generous use of multi-media insures that teaching methods appeal to a variety of learning styles. The high-interest core curriculum covers fascinating evidence from recent science as well as ancient wisdom. Instructional techniques such as demonstration and return demonstration insure establishment of entry level skills in only 2-days.  

.

Art Therapy and Music Therapy have long established the viability of adjunctive therapeutic modalities. Now there is Laughter therapy. It is the natural outflow of the convergence of the need for effective, efficient activity programming, the anticipation of a population of New Seniors (Baby Boomers), a growing body of evidence from gelotology (the science of laughter), acceptance of an integrative approach to medical treatment, and the creation of a curriculum that meets professional continuing education requirements. Hosts maintain high standards and achieve a competitive advantage while delivering innovative programming that embraces the joy of living.
