“Wenn du dein Bestes gibst, endet das in einer Katastrophe. Bitte gib nicht dein Bestes
(Keith Johnstone)

“Man sollte dem Patienten nicht nur beibringen, seine Angst anzunehmen, sondern auch, darüber zu lachen. Das verlangt den Mut, sich lächerlich zu machen”(Viktor Frankl)

Wenn wir lachen, brechen wir immer Normen und erfahren das Unerwartete. Humor Drama und paradoxes Coaching machen alte Glaubensmuster sichtbar und bieten neue an.
Dadurch erreichen wir in Stressituationen den nötigen Abstand, um uns wieder wohl zu fühlen. Mit dieser Methode lernen wir, Schwierigkeiten, Schwächen, Ängste, Herausforderungen und unangenehme Gefühle zuzulassen.
Durch Humor Drama und paradoxes Coaching können wir neue Wahlmöglichkeiten erkennen, so dass die begrenzenden Gefühle ihre Macht über uns verlieren. So wird es möglich, über uns selbst zu lachen und uns selbst zu akzeptieren.
In diesem Workshop werden wir viel lachen, die unmöglichsten Dinge spielend erleben, improvisieren und lernen, wie wir den logischen Verstand ausschalten können.
Wir alle besitzen bestimmte Schwächen, Unvollkommenheiten und Erfahrungen, die mit Scham und Schuld, Zurückweisung, Angst und Agression zu tun haben.
Im Seminar werden wir lernen, diese Anteile von uns bewusst wahrzunehmen und kennenzulernen. Das erreichen wir mit Hilfe von Humor, Übertreibung und Clownarbeit

"To Truly Laugh, One Should be able  to take his pain and PLAY with it " (Charlie Chaplin)

“If you do your best, it ends in disaster. Please don't do your best
(Keith Johnstone)


“One should not only teach the patient to accept his fear, but also to laugh at it. That requires the courage to make a fool of yourself” (Viktor Frankl)


When we laugh, we always break norms and experience the unexpected. Humor drama and paradoxical coaching make old beliefs visible and offer new ones.
This gives us the necessary distance in stressful situations to feel good again. With this method we learn to allow difficulties, weaknesses, fears, challenges and unpleasant feelings.
Through humor drama and paradoxical coaching, we can see new choices so that the limiting emotions lose their power over us. This makes it possible to laugh at ourselves and accept ourselves.
In this workshop we will laugh a lot, experience the most impossible things through play, improvise and learn how to switch off the logical mind.
We all have certain weaknesses, imperfections, and experiences related to shame and guilt, rejection, fear, and aggression.
In the seminar we will learn to consciously perceive and get to know these parts of ourselves. We achieve this with the help of humor, exaggeration and clown work.

Another very important Motif which will be introduced quite in an elaborating way,  is NON DESTRUCTIVE AGGRESSIVENESS , CREATIVE ANGER (Psyhcologist Bach , Keith Johnstone)

We will also practice the Concept of EuStress  "Hormesis" (Positive Stress) through clowning.


The Training draws much of its essence from Viktor Frankl's LogoDrama (Paradoxical Intentions) and Alfred Adler's AutoSugestia. Mainly Frankl. The Same idea is applied through Therapeutic Clowning, Wisdom of Fools and Nonsense. 
It is an invitation to Artistic Clowns to play with Therapeutic Clowning, Therapeutic Clowning was introduced in Germany also in different mental clinics by HumorCare Germany &Austria.

Alex Sternick is a nutritionist and coach for humorous improvisation, nonsense and paradoxical performance on stage. In his work he helps people to accept their difficulties, imperfections and challenges in life - with the help of stage work and humor.
