Basic tools in medical clowning for youth


Background about the art of clowning

Using the clown's comic role in daily situationsClowning is an ancient art dating back to ancient civilizations when clowns were a reflection of the king.
Using the clown's comic role, daily situations can be presented in an absurd, ridiculous way, offering us a chance to laugh at the gravity of the situation.

There is a clown in each one of us and he is our inner source of joy.

Laughter releases and eases difficulties and tensions in situations where a serious conversation is one of the most difficult tasks.

Using this form of language, we are exposed to a world that extends and enriches our options and gives us additional, unique tools for communication.

Recently, clowning has been used as a new language that creates possibilities for unique, experience-filled interpersonal communication: developing improvisation skills, self-empowerment, gaining personal insight and imparting practical tools for life.

 

The program offers the following:
• Imparting practical tools for cheering patients in hospitals and/or various rehabilitation institutes
• Developing improvisation skills and supplementary techniques, which support the role of the clown
• Gaining personal insights using the clown's language and imparting practical tools for life
• We will learn to allow the different and ridiculous to exist, whilst finding the positive in them
• We will offer freedom to make mistakes and find the humor in them
• Creating self-empowerment and reinforcing self confidence
• Interpersonal communication with those around us and with ourselves, through humor
• Learning about nonverbal communication and its implications
The workshop is experience-filled and presented through games and activities for youths
