Laughter is something that comes to us naturally, but why? The Laughter Therapy Diploma Course explains this, offering evolutionary reasoning and social theories that bring a greater understanding of this natural behaviour that is so effective it can be used in structured therapy.
To understand why Laughter Therapy has come about, you need to understand why people would be encouraged to laugh and what specific physical benefits they would gain. The course describes various systems and parts of the body, explaining their purposes and how laughter has a positive physiological effect on them and can trigger healing.
It’s hard to hang on to negative thoughts and feelings when you’re laughing. With this in mind, the Laughter Therapy Diploma Course looks at the benefits of laughter on mental health. You will learn the benefits of involving laughter in long-term mental and emotional well-being.
