NOSE IN THE POCKET
CLOWN-TOOLS TO DEEPEN CONTACT WITH RESIDENTS/PATIENTS
For teams in hospitals, institutions for people with disabilities or dementia
From our many years of experience, we have set up a special programme in which we provide clowning tools to care workers. The clown has a very unique way of making contact, which pays attention to the person behind the illness or disability. The clown has many tools to make contact in fragile situations, a.o. through touch, voice, basic (clowning) stimulation, play, fantasy and humour. Sometimes miracles happen between clowns and people who are sometimes hard to reach because of their disability or dementia. Through clear exercises, we take your team through the approach of care-clowns, not to turn caregivers into clowns, but to learn how that can complement daily work and contacts with residents/patients. A light and deep exploration into the wonder that contact can be.
Interested in immersing your team in this special world of making contact? Then contact us to see what we can do for you.
