Categorically Left Over but No Less Important!
“All the commercials on TV today are for antidepressants, for Prozac or Paxil. And they get you right away. ‘Are you sad? Do you get stressed, do you have anxiety?’ Yes! I have all those things! I’m alive!” ~ Ellen DeGeneres
Improv Classes Help with Communication
Trying improv comedy for the first time could be daunting for anyone, but Second City has been offering these classes for teens who are on the Autism spectrum and their progress is incredible. It offers an opportunity to practice communication sills, talking to people, looking them in the eye, and listening and relating to others.
Improv for Autism launched in 2013 and is one of several “wellness” classes for people with autism and also with anxiety, senior citizens, and people with Parkinson’s disease. Studies show that the effects of improv on the brain goes beyond entertainment and could open a door to a new area of mental health treatment.
And who doesn’t want to laugh more?
