The Power of Laughter for Learning – 14 November 2013

Laughter-TherapyLaughter is carbonated holiness.
Anne Lamott (author of Bird by Bird – whose writing makes author & coach, Sue Knight, laugh!)

We cannot laugh and think at the same time. This is a huge advantage when coaching and training people, as too much thinking often hinders progress! Sue Knight has for many years modelled master of Provocative Therapy, Frank Farrelly, and has unpacked the strategies of his very powerful approach. This workshop is an opportunity to explore and practice some of these strategies for change.

The ability to enable us to laugh at our issues changes the way that we experience them astonishingly.

  • Laughter is increasingly recognised as a powerful source of healing resources.
  • When we laugh something happens in our brain and we release new chemicals into our blood stream.. chemicals that support us to think and experience things differently from before.

This workshop will explore using laughter to enhance:

  • Individual responses to events – showing coaches how to use laughter in ways that are valuable to their work with clients.
  • Client perspectives – how humour will help them move on from situations.
  • Organisations – what they can draw from best practice that is valuable in working with groups and teams.

You will get:

  • An understanding of some of the elements of coaching with humour and strategies to use in your work
  • The know-how to apply to this approach in practice
  • The theoretical background to avoiding the Drama Triangle

This unique opportunity offers you a chance to…

  • Learn to recognise how humour manifests in practitioners and in their clients
  • Understand its impact on performance
  • Focus on regaining perspective through humour
  • Practise helping individuals re-find a sense of humour
