What is Laughter Therapy?

(hint: it's more than just "LOL")

While there are many definitions for laughter therapy since the term generalizes to include laughter related programs in the lay community, it refers to a more substantive form of laughter in therapy in the mental health community. Laughter releases three major feelings—anxiety, anger, and boredom. When triggered appropriately with a trained laughter therapist, it enables a person to resolve issues fairly rapidly and effectively.
