UI Prof Teaches Laughter

Matthew Wappett teaches teachers how to laugh. Three years ago, at Harvard Medical School, Wappett went to a session on laughter yoga, where he joined 80 doctors in exercises that induce laughter. “The doctors were all in suits and ties and uptight and starchy. She started doing the exercises and all of a sudden they became social and friendly and they relaxed. It changed the whole environment of this cohort,” Wappett said. When he came back to the University of Idaho, students requested he study laughter and become the adviser for the new UI Laughter Club, he said/Estelle Gwinn, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
