“How to Create Therapeutic Laughter” Workshop
The World Laughter Tour training program, “How To Create Therapeutic Laughter” prepares you to become a qualified leader for Laughter Clubs and other therapeutic laughter activities. Qualified leadership by a Certified Laughter Leader (CLL) is a requirement for all World Laughter Tour Laughter Clubs. The workshop is April 27-28 at Spectrum Healthcare Group, 8 E. Cottonwood Street in Cottonwood and taught by World Laughter Tour Instructor Debbie Harbinson, RN.
As part of the training, you will learn about the science of laughter, as well as the theory, philosophy, psychology, and physical aspects of the Laughter Club method. You will become well-versed in the practices of Good-Hearted Living™, which is a unique World Laughter Tour program in the prevention of hardening of the attitudes. You will be asked to subscribe to a code of ethics and traditional laughter club values. As a Certified Laughter Leader, you will become familiarized with management of group dynamics to obtain effective results.
Training underscores the leadership characteristics of authenticity, vigor, depth, encouragement, motivation, passion, zest, and joy. Training is approved for continuing education for Activity Therapists, Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists.
As a Certified Laughter Leader, you have a choice to operate your Laughter Clubs for free or for a fee. Opportunities are still abundant. You have a chance to bring therapeutic laughter to many situations and for many of the participants, it can be life transforming! Increasingly, Certified Laughter Leaders may be called upon to provide demonstrations, run laughter programs, and give talks, seminars and workshops on related topics. You have it within yourself to make a remarkable difference in people’s lives through the power of laughter!
Anyone who wants to be a Certified Laughter Leader must show satisfactory completion of the basic two-day leader training workshop. A medical background is not required.
