Track #4 Pediatric and Nursing Home Clowning includes Field trip – Ron Anglin & Hope HolmesTaneycomo (Circus)

Hospital clowning is an interdisciplinary art that involves a wide variety of skills, such as humor, drama, music, and dance, and has a notable beneficial and therapeutic impact on patients. First established in the US in 1986 by professional clown Michael Christensen, therapeutic clowning has since become a popular practice in hospitals worldwide, especially with, but not limited to, children. The main aim is to distract patients during the preoperative period and during medical procedures, induce positive emotions, and decrease negative emotions in order to demystify medicine and help in the healing process.
