Post-Traumatic Growth Workshop – Being Remarkable on Purpose : 9-10 April

Humourworx Post-Traumatic Growth Being Remarkable on Purpose

A two day weekend workshop with Phil Jeremiah IV in Newcastle upon Tyne

Post-Traumatic Growth Being Remarkable on Purpose

For connoisseurs like yourself who value experiential training that will greatly assist your creativity, resilience, anti-fragility with exceptional tools you use and can share with your clients and family.

“Your conscious and unconscious thinking defines your reaction or response to other people, circumstances, and external events.





So, is it vital to recognise and acknowledge your thoughts, worries and feelings about the world at large, because you’re thinking affects your fatigue/tiredness/energetic states.

Basically, it’s difficult to solve problems when we are in low energy states/tired. The global pandemic has affected most of us on a day-to-day basis, and maybe we need to explore what Post Traumatic Growth would look like and feel like, while still emphasising the grief many of us have experienced. The mystery is, “you can be remarkable on purpose!””

This is an experimental workshop, but it will be underpinned with the structure of Provocative Coaching in all its wonderment and daylight. As well as the existing model of Percussion – Concussion – Discussion, Phil will release a new model of, Define it – Deconstruct it – Develop it – Drive it. The challenge is to find strategies that include different modes of fun which appeal to our diverse tastes, because the humour responses are learned and are affected by our gender, age, religion, culture/media, and upbringing.

Walking on The Moon Dangerous Ideas

Psychoneuroimmunology of laughter smashing together Polyvagal theory, Amygdala Paradox into the Giant Hadron Collider of Provocative Coaching. Every description like grit or resilience is manufactured in your own chemical electrical mind body systems. You cannot do anything without thinking; you are the creator of your moods, feelings and behavioural patterns.

Your thinking defines your reaction or response to other people, circumstances and events. Your thinking affects your fatigue/tiredness states, new brain cell production and a whole array of feelgood chemicals. The autonomic nervous system sympathetic branch can be triggered for fight, flight and freeze through the Polyvagal and Amygdala systems, whether the threat is real or imagined.

However, there is an antidote, and it is already available within you. This workshop will help you generate many new ideas and add to your existing toolbox to help people.

Humour Worx : Provocative Change : Workshop : Newcastle 28-30 July

Humour Worx and it all begins in the ‘Bubble of Possibility‘. Provocative Change is all about the structured and unstructured ( spontaneity ) use of irrelevance. Irrelevance has a structure so this should at least be confusing. Here we go!

Get an amazing solution oriented set of key skills to add to your tool box with Humour Worx Provocative Change.

The ‘Bubble Of Possibility’ is a metaphor, and from the outset, The Bubble creates a safe and genuinely challenging space to be prodded, poked and encouraged to explore a problem, a limitation or a thought. This is the safe space where provocative change happens. The Bubble is necessary to set the stage of what can happen. Anything, everything and all that is in between.

Phil has been coming to Newcastle to teach his Humour Worx since 2010. Phil’s work is constantly evolving and is based in solid structures that have a way of creating neuro-plastic change in the brain that is soaked in humour.

As a participant you will be learning patterns and drills ( which are easy to learn ) which culminate in a set of skills, suitably framed, that are a perfect addition to your current skills set.

Provocative Change Patterns

This is Phil’s latest work which is comprising of updated structure of Humour Worx being 20 patterns and an additional day of the advanced stuff which is rarely taught, as they say, the cutting edge. Here are some of the patterns.

  • Voice Technology
  • Don’t worry about that
  • Where there is blame there is a claim
  • Problem justification shuffle
  • Research shows

Over three days you will be internalising some 20 linguistic patterns of Provocative Change in Humour Worx BUT as seasoned practitioners know the linguistic patterns are just a part of the congruent attitude that both verbal and non-verbal excellent change workers demonstrate.

You will be developing your own personal style of expression of the Provocative Change Humour Worx system which on day three will grow into the reality you can create and project.

The three days are centered around genuine Bubble Session where you will experience Phil working 1:1 in 20 minute sessions. Did you know it takes around 20 minutes to create, that is grow and solidify new neural connections?

This is an excellent opportunity to work with and model ( in my opinion ) the best Provocative Change exponent. The workshop is also excellent value.
