AATH is The Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor -
THE home for humor and laughter professionals.
Their 27th annual humor conference is April 3-6 in Vincennes, Indiana.
Everyone loves to laugh,
but did you know that therapeutic humor is a valuable tool to help yourself and others?
I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. — Bob Hope
Think of those who battle cancer and chronic illness, nurse patients with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury, comfort the dying, care for a parent with Alzheimer’s, cope with the death of a son in a car accident, deal with the legacy of alcoholic parents, struggle with the aftermath of rape, miscarriages, suicide.
Unfortunately, “Pain and Suffering” is a reality show playing at a neighborhood near you.
Hard to believe, but I’m told some people stress out over traffic jams (not me!) or a a lost earring (nope!) or (God forbid!) a lousy internet connection.
The transformative power of humor is one of the best medicines.
I support AATH – YOU can, too!
