Don’t Equate a Sense of Humor with a Lack of Seriousness

8 Nov

Last week I gave a lecture as a part of a presentation at the ICDL international conference of DIRFloortime® on the use of humor in Floortime. In the lecture, I showed how a Pie Fight (yes a Pie Fight!) was the perfect vehicle for showing what a person could laugh at, at various Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities. It was a blast to put together (I got to watch hours of pie fights on film!), and tons of fun to present. At the beginning of the presentation I showed this clip of me presenting the Keynote at a previous DIRFloortime® conference in 2015. I am posting that clip again, to make the point that I made in 2015, and in 2022 in conference presentations, that joyful play is the vehicle for Floortime, but it is an absolutely serious method of developmental support.

Enjoy!

    The ICDL conference presentation was fabulous and very enjoyable. I would love to do a podcast with you on this topic as well!
