In the first of our sessions for Carers Week, we are going to be exploring why we often laugh in the face of adversity, and the science behind laughter.

Valerie Judge, a member of the Couch Crew with an education in psychology, will look at the ways laughter - even during the darkest times - can be beneficial for carers’ health, releasing 'feel good' hormones and strengthening the immune system.

Valerie will be joined by carer Kevin MacIsaac who will share how humour gets him and his family through tough times. They will also explore the difference between light and dark humour, the risks of crossing moral or values-based boundaries and recognising when someone retracts from humour as an outlet.
