How do you use humor as a power tool to boost team spirit and healing with clients? Humor can take an ordinary supervisory relationship to the next level. The best part about humor: it can be applied in any clinical setting! At this interactive workshop, find out how to practice different forms of humor such as a story, metaphor, therapeutic ploy or funny failure. Role play will be incorporated to enhance the use of healthy workplace humor in supervisory relationships.
