Part ONE of Series: "What is Healing Humor and Why We All Need It -- What the World Needs NOW!" Join your host Becky Cortino with special guest Roz Trieber, a professional motivational speaker trainer and health educator, Towson University adjunct faculty member, and author of "Live Life Laughing," "The Joy of Living," Creater of HumorFusion-combining theater arts and traditional education providing successful strategies for people under pressure. This is the Kick-off International Humor Month Celebration here on AHeart4Clowning Talk Radio! During the month of April, 2009, AATH - the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor is launching a new annual celebration: "National Humor Month." Positive humor, shared laughter and a smile are like bridges between people -- even if they don't speak the same language. According to AATH (aath.org), Healthy, Therapeutic Humor enhances relationships, is non-hostile, sympathetic, benevolent, tolerant, and often philosophical. AATH is careful to distinguish Healthy Humor from hurtful or harmful humor that is more aggressive, critical, sarcastic, cruel, often based on put-downs, and involves laughing at someone else's expense. As a member of AATH, I thought this would be an excellent channel to discuss this topic, and it might be FUN to help further the global celebration of this momentous occasion on AHeart4Clowning TalkRadio Show, in tandem with AATH's "National Humor Month," and in support of the concept of Healing Humor. This show is a kick-off to the month-long celebration! We will be defining what Humor is and what Healing Humor is and why this is what the world really needs -- NOW! Plan to join us!
