• Therapeutic Clowning 2 THEA 9024

    New

    Our Therapeutic Clowning 2 course further explores the clowning profession by building on THEA 9023 Therapeutic Clowning 1. Explore a range of topics, including bioethics; surgical and medical procedures; medical equipment, assistive devices and prosthetics; psychology and mental health; growth and development; collaborative practice; peer support and team dynamics; the feedback process; and compassion fatigue. Take part in additional reflective practice sessions as well as advanced training in cleaning, disinfecting and maintaining your props and outfits. In a studio setting, learn about various music and dance genres; learn duo techniques such as mirroring, rhythm, status and contrast; and learn to work with hospital objects (as puppets) and masks. Study the different communication techniques used to approach each type of patient, including teens, elders and those who are non-verbal. Guest speakers include a variety of artistic trainers. Additionally, since you developed your clown personas and outfits in THEA 9023 Therapeutic Clowning 1, this clowning course gives you the opportunity to be paired ‘in nose’ with a professional therapeutic clown practitioner and to shadow other students.
