Three Caregivers Walk into a Bar: Caregiving, Improvisation, and Humor

The Second City and Caring Across Generations have joined forces to develop a unique training program that strengthens the skills of caregivers through improvisational techniques and practices. Discover how it will work in an evening that offers stories, insights, and interactive experiences that reveal the power of collaborative communication. You will participate in exercises where you learn to operate in a "yes, and…" mindset, one funny enough to make you laugh and powerful enough to stir your heart. Learn why the tools of improv can dramatically transform caregiving relationships, leading to better outcomes and a more meaningful journey for everyone involved.
