IMPROV COMEDY FOR THERAPISTS
WHAT: FREE IMPROV WORKSHOP
WHEN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 4-6PM
WHERE: River Park Community Center 301 11th Street North, Naples, FL
I’m inviting you to attend a free workshop on Improv Comedy for Therapists.
This exciting “alternative” therapy is gaining recognition with therapists nationally and internationally.
Although there is little scientific research demonstrating the efficacy of improvisation as therapy, anecdotal evidence suggests people are benefiting from these techniques with issues like social anxiety.
Why does Improv assist in the therapeutic process?
The basic rules of improv, such as unconditional positive regard for other members and that there is no “right or wrong” way to play Improv, create a safe and trusting environment for our patients.
The exercises we teach are geared toward relinquishing a need to know everything before it happens, letting go of the idea that being in-the-moment is terrifying and learning to connect with people by having no expectations of them whatsoever.
This free two-hour workshop offers you an opportunity to explore how Improv Comedy might be helpful to you and your clients.
