It’s nice to read about humor, it’s inspiring to learn about the ways that you can apply humor interventions, but at the end of the day it’s all about incorporating more humor in your life. An easy and fun way to start with is to surround yourself with more humor. On this page I’ll publish material, ideas and suggestions to help you on your way. Have fun!

A boy came home with a report card that included 4 D's and 3 F's. He said: "What do you think my problem is dad, heredity or environment?"

The Provocative Therapy Podcast

The podcast about the provocative therapy was meant to be an easy way to get acquainted with the basic assumptions and some of the techniques of this recalcitrant way of helping our clients. Because of the experience of making many more podcast in Spanish and Dutch I learned that it is even more fun to make and to listen to the podcast when I invite guests with their own specialities to talk about divers topics on psychotherapy. 

So that is what you can expect as well form this series on the provocative therapy. After the first seven episodes I will be talking to a lot of guests talking about a lot of different topics. It might surprise you, but humor and the application of humor in psychotherapy will get a lot of focus.

To the left you’ll find the podcast on Soundcloud. If you rather listen to it on Spotify or Apple Podcast, please click the button below to go to the podcast page with more options.

Provocative Therapy

The provocative style uses a lot of humor, 'playing around' with the non-constructive coping mechanisms of the clients. Therefore books about the provocative therapy usually contain a lot of examples showing you how to use humor and play in a psychotherapeutic setting.

If you are interested in the provocative therapy then this book by Frank Farrelly and Jeff Brandsma is highly recommended. It tells about the way Farrelly developed his new therapy and describes a lot of cases explaining why his different approach to therapy works.
