Improving your emotional intelligence through learning Improv is not only beneficial but also fun! In this course, individuals are able to explore and process triggers together and find group cohesion through play and humor. This course teaches individuals how to become more aware of, express, and control their emotions, while learning how to connect in interpersonal relationships. Students will find this class to be light-hearted and funny while gaining support with others who have similar struggles. In addition to improv techniques that promote mental health and manage anxiety, therapeutic modalities such as mindfulness, CBT, Biofeedback, and Rapid Resolution Therapy will also be integrated throughout the class.
