Permission to Play – Lessons for Caregivers from Improv Comedy (Webinar)

November 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free
Join us for Permission to Play – Lessons for Caregivers from Improv Comedy (Webinar) on Tuesday, November 24 at 1 PM.

Caregiving isn’t all fun and games. But it can lightened at times, and improv games are the perfect way to de-stress with other caregivers. Getting out of your head and into the moment you are sharing together gives you the permission to play, opening a world of communication with who you are caring for.

In this interactive program, you’ll learn a few tricks for managing your mindset from the world of improvised theatre. You’ll leave with new ways to engage those you care for, games that bring out the silly, even in quarantine, how to go easy on yourself and your “scene partners” when things feel heavy. Give yourself the permission to play and find the humor when you need it most.

This program is presented by Chelsea Hilend, professional improviser and Sak Comedy Lab instructor, and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
