- World Laughter Tour- Certified Laughter Leader
This training program, “How To Create Therapeutic Laughter” prepared me 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.
As part of the training, I learned about the science of laughter, as well as the theory, philosophy, psychology, and physical aspects of the Laughter Club method. I am 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! I subscribe to a code of ethics and traditional laughter club values. As a Certified Laughter Leader, I am familiar with the management of group dynamics to obtain effective results for your organization, company, or team.
My training underscores the leadership characteristics of authenticity, vigor, depth, encouragement, motivation, passion, zest, and joy. I will bring this to an individualized program for you!
