This is the basic prerequisite course as a vital
and qualifying tool to becoming a certified Laughter Coach.It will
give you a deeper understanding and insight in the healing qualities
and functions of laughter.
Annette Goodheart, Psychologist has 37 years of experience as a
Laughter Therapist. She has a deep understanding, knowledge and
experience of the mechanisms and effects of laughter at work. Annette
is the founder of Laughter Therapy and Laughter Coaching and author
of "Laughter Therapy; How to laugh about everything in your
life that isnt really funny". The premise of the book
is that laughter is a natural given process for our health and well
being and that there does not need to be a special reason to laugh.
Annette argues that we do not even need to be happy or to have a
sense of humour, to laugh. Laughter is simply one of the ways in
which to release tensions.
Throughout our history various notions and attitudes have influenced
the way we regard laughter, particularly in our western culture,
thus blocking a full and natural expression of laughter. Annette
Goodheart encourages us to support each other and ourselves by allowing
ourselves to laugh when we feel down and miserable. If we allow
ourselves to accept this attitude, we will open unimaginable possibilities
to enjoy the enormous power of laughter. We can ask ourselves: What
do I need to laugh about in my life right now? By laughing about
our problems, we release the tensions around them. Our perspective
changes towards the problems and we can become more creative in
our attempt to solve them. This is a useful and essential tool in
our life. Annette, well known globally, teaches and trains at universities,
high schools, companies, organizations and public events worldwide.
Goodheart's work and book, are an inspiration for people globally
who need more laughter in their lives.
