About this event

This workshop will explore the use of therapeutic laughter and its positive impact on health, through an exploration of laughter as therapy, performance, entertainment, and, importantly, as a therapeutic device for clients. Consideration will be given to neuroplasticity and somatic practice and, whilst the session will not qualify participants as Laughter Therapists, it will cover a range of practical techniques that can be used with clients.

 Distinguish, on a personal level, what laughter is, how it is embodied, and its usefulness
