Webinar Description

This class provides a "deep dive" into the ethical and mindful use of humor as intervention in psychotherapy and other helping professions.  Over the course of the class, participants will learn about the known history of humor in our species and in the psychotherapy profession.  The research about humor, both as used in psychotherapy and as studied more widely, will be reviewed.  We will explore humor in light of various theories including power dynamics, CBT, DBT, and SFBT.  

Through all of this, several primary purposes and uses of humor will be identified.  We will also explore potential signs that humor is the wrong choice in the moment.  The instructor will share their own experiences with using humor well in session, and participants will have the chance to share their own stories.
