Patt's presentations are designed to teach her audiences how to have more fun and be more competent in their professional and personal lives.
All of Dr. Schwabs programs use humor to get their point across and each is designed to assist the audience in putting problems and difficult people or situations into perspective. While the linked write-ups are on the generic side, please know that her presentations are highly researched and adapted to fit the needs and issues of both the occasion and her audience.

Is your group interested in understanding or creating humor in their workplace? Would they enjoy laughing while learning about humor?s role in leadership or creativity or health?
1.Creating a Legacy of Laughter - A workshop exploring the many ways we acquire and express our sense of humor, and what things we do (or could do) to enable others to use the benefits of humor. The emphasis is on creating a legacy now that enriches the lives of friends, co-workers and loved ones while it helps us live longer, work more effectively, and invest in fun. (OK, OK, for you financial types, it's actually more like an annuity that pays out big dividends while we're alive, it's just that the alliteration of Legacy of Laughter is so much better!) (Length of program: 90 minutes to 3 hours.)
2.S/He Who Laughs. . .Lasts! Also titled: How to Succeed With HumorCan You Succeed Without It? This program can be designed to emphasize how to use humor as a management skill, an interpersonal aid, or as a tool to keep perspective and reduce stress in difficult times. It can also be used as a mixer with a focus on group interaction. This presentation usually concludes with a variety of ways to increase the humor in your life "without becoming a clown." (Length of program: 90 minutes to 3 hours.)
3.Laughing Your Way to the Top! - This presentation is geared for folks interested in what you can learn about your organization by listening to the laughter in it. It proposes ways to shape that laughter to enhance creativity, productivity and loyalty and to make the workplace more enjoyable for staff and clients. (Length of program: 60 minutes to 3 hours.)
4.Humor's Role in Tragedy - Designed to be added to selective presentations, Humor's Role in tragedy describes the development of 4 sages of post traumatic humor and what they indicate about the individual or group's state of recovery from a tragedy or disaster. While this material includes humorous examples, it is primarily informative. (Yes, it touches on 9/11 but it doesn't dwell there.)
NOTE: This presentation emphatically does NOT say that joke telling is the way to resolve a tragedy. It looks at the use of situation appropriate humor as one of many indicators of emotional recovery.

VITAMIN H - the Prescription for Humor

7.Women, Humor & Power (and Men!) - This presentation discusses the use of humor as a managerial and interpersonal skill with an emphasis on gender differences and the workplace. Not a male bashing presentation! (Length of program: 90 minutes to 3 hours.)
