Learning to Keep Your Sense of Humour on Tough Days

This workshop is based on a Humor Training Program called The 7 Humor Habits Program. It has been successfully tested in four countries (Switzerland, Germany and Australia—as well as the USA). There is also a Japanese translation of the book containing the Training now available in Japan. The Training is contained in Paul’s book, Humor as Survival Training for a Stressed-Out world: The 7 Humor Habits Program. The focus of this Training is to first get a better understanding of your own sense of humor, and then practice the 7 key humor habits, with the ultimate goal of keeping your sense of humor on high-stress days; i.e., learning to use\ “humor” to cope with life stress—both in your work with young children and elsewhere in daily life.


Dr. Paul Mcghee is a developmental psychologist who spent 20 years teaching at the university level before quitting his academic job to become a full-time professional speaker. Paul has published 5 books and many scientific articles on children’s humor and is internationally known for his own research in the area.?
