The power of positivity! Laughter therapy with Senara, Spain

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Our enterprising NGO partners do incredible work in making sure FATIMA participants enjoy all sorts of different stimulating and educational activities. Over the past couple of months, they’ve held workshops on a wide range of topics: motivation, personality types, time management, effective communication, the legal aspects of immigration, and even the anthropology of fashion!

Fundación Senara, based in Madrid, recently held a workshop on laughter therapy or risoterapia.

Laughter therapy is all about energy, vitality, humour, and the importance of a smile when staring down your problems.

It was an apt session, given that migrants often have to confront new barriers and obstacles in their new country, in addition to the daily challenges of everyday life.

What a great reminder to us all on the power of positivity and supportive group energy when dealing with challenges and problems in life!
