Humour has a powerful impact when working with groups of people.
It makes communication more effective.
Humour helps build a team and community.
When working with groups, incorporating humour can have many positive effects.
HUMOUR AFFECTS GROUPS BY:
Reducing stress – relaxes the tone when interacting with others;
Building relationships – promotes open communication and reduces fear of being judged by others;
Building morale – encourages everyone to participate and take part. Makes interaction more enjoyable;
Strengthening teams – removes barriers between team members and helps build bonds;
Making change easier – eases anxiety and discomfort as the lighter side of change is seen;
Increasing productivity – a happier group is more productive;
Benefiting health – laughter has many health benefits as it reduces tension and improves general health.
YOUTH GROUP SESSIONS
In our youth group sessions,we can have a person who counts the number of laughs they hear during the session. This reminds us how much fun we have during a session.
To promote laughter we have a role for a person to tell a humorous story or a joke.
