Lancaster, Pennsylvania - September 3-4, 2018
Sente-Mente® Unconditional Therapeutic Laughter Training, why?
Dementia carries people to connect to their depressive side.
Also caregivers and social-health workers live stress and impotence and they get sick in return.
Last researches told us that when caregivers and social-health workers are happy, they become able to improve the efficacy and the resilience.
Who you will become at the end of the course?
At the end of this course you will be a laughter trainer that could conduct:
- Meeting one to one
- Laughter sessions
You could take laughter in your therapeutical relationship, also using eye contact and therapeutical touch.

Richard Taylor, who lives with Alzheimer, told: “Laughter is not a key to slowing the progress of the symptoms of Alzheimer or any other form of dementia. Laughter is not a key to curing any form of dementia. Laughter can even have a hard and hurtful edge to it when it is not shared by everyone in the room. On the other hand, laughter can break the tension of a moment. Laughter can transform lemons into lemonade, if only for a moment or two. Laughter can, temporarily at least, heal the nicks and cuts to the self-esteem, the loss of self-control, and the purposeless lives of too many folks who live with ever-increasing symptoms of dementia.
Laughter is glue that can hold couples together in the most stressful of moments. On one of the first days after my diagnosis, there was a moment of absurdity in our household, and I started to laugh. My wife Linda, then started to laugh. We sat there laughing until we cried tears of joy, tears that connected us, tears that proved we were going to get through this, whatever this was going to turn out to be, to get through it together, loving each other, laughing at ourselves and with each other”.
