Humour, Health & Happiness Conference 2007, Liverpool, England, UK

This international conference focusing on Humour, Happiness & Health, will be hosted by The Comedy Trust to coincide with the Liverpool Comedy Festival in June 2007. The Trust has now hosted two previous successful conferences in 2005, 'Is Laughter the best medicine?' and in 2006 'Can Laughing make you happier and healthier?' The 2007 conference will focus on humour in our communities, schools, hospitals, health care and government.

Examples of humour and its relationship to Health & Happiness might include those associated with laughter therapy or use of comedy or humour in healthcare and studies pertaining to the role humour and laughter in education. 

Delegates will have the opportunity to engage not only with those in their field, but also with a variety of comedy professionals and critics in an ambient location in the city of Liverpool.

For more information and to register your interest in presenting please contact The Comedy Trust on 0870 443 0955 or by email at [log in to unmask] 

The Comedy Trust (TCT) is a registered charity set up in April 2002 to run programmes using comedy to help young people build confidence skills and self esteem. These Programmes entitled 'Stand Out' are run in schools across the country encouraging young people to use comedy and laughter in their everyday lives. 

Another key aspect of the TCT's work is researching the relationship between comedy, health and well-being. TCT have delivered comedy workshops, Laugher therapy sessions and stand up comedy performances in hospitals and health centres and are working towards establishing the feasibility of a 'Comedy On Prescription' scheme with various health agencies. TCT are also conducting research in the education field to examine the impact of humour on students learning in secondary education.
