Improv for Birthworkers
March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As birthworkers we need to be agile, flexible, collaborative, creative, innovative, nonjudgemental and resilient. That’s a tall order. This immersive hands-on class speaks to the increasing diversity of skill-set we need to do our jobs and do them well. Improvisation provides people a practice in building the tools to make them better listeners. It instills an increased openness to new thoughts and ideas and builds confidence, empathy and understanding.
Creating a fun and physical learning environment, Erica and Laura take their backgrounds as performers and improvisers and teach birthworkers how to come out of their shells and increase their ability to hold space, understand and laugh their way through birthworker life. We develop storytelling capabilities that will boost your branding, practices and exercises that increase agility and thinking on your feet and games that increase your ability to respond to curveballs, to better manage change, and to bounce back from a stressful or traumatic experience..
Learn as we take the basics of comedy improvisation (“yes and”, ready to fail, risk taking, being in the moment and commitment) and apply them to the field of birth work for a exciting, fun and expansive new look at how to be a sacred space holder. Book more clients by increasing your communication and interviewing skills, being comfortable giving your spiel on the fly and welcoming humor into your work. You’ve never taken a class this fun!
