This short course will use theory, techniques and group experience to demonstrate how playful self-expression, humor and self-soothing indulgent fantasy can be used in and outside the therapeutic setting to produce spiritually uplifting trance states. We will learn how to discourage "learned helplessness" and "burn out", encourage the ability to cope with life's challenges and increase opportunities to enhance the body's natural immune system functioning.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list three creatively playful coping techniques that can be used with discouraged individuals.
  2. To describe two theories that justify the therapeutic use of humor, play and self-fulfillment that may counterbalance states of learned helplessness.
