Healing through Humor Series

Apr 12th 5:00 PM virtual program Virtual Program

/content/skcc/events/healing-through-humor-series3

Facilitated by: Caroline Rhoads, MSW Intern Each month we will learn a new improv skill and explore how this can help us in everyday situations. Laughter sometimes begets the best lessons. Sign on for an hour of play. Participants are encouraged to leave their judgment and inner critics at the door and reap the benefits of a bit of silliness. As the old adage says, “laughter is the best medicine.” 4/12/21: Healing Through Humor: Playing with our Past and Present Selves In this workshop, we would try exercises where participants could communicate with their past self...focusing on what lessons one has learned and giving advice to the past version. The improv games could also explore advice from the “future self”- what might they say if they time traveled 5 years into the future. All of this reinforces the importance of living in the present and taking one day at a time. It also is a great way to name strengths that have served them throughout this cancer journey and will continue to serve them.
