Training & Coaching

ClownSense provides training and coaching for healthcare clowns. Below you find a variety of workshops and thematics that we find essential in the training of clowns. However, often we develop a program in collaboration with the organizations, listening to their questions and wishes. We find it fascinating to respond to them, it keeps us flexible and makes us grow in our own practice.

A small overview of possible thematics:
