‘I was only joking!’ – Interpreting humour in workplace settings

Cost from £25

As one of Dr Dickinson’s research participants notes, ‘The ‘…quick jokey comments, ‘in- jokes’ and asides’ are ‘…a vital part of making the Deaf person feel a part of the team’.  Workplace humour can make relationships, enhance career opportunities and make the 9-5 that much more pleasurable.

However, it’s not easy to interpret. What strategies can we employ to deal with the differences between Deaf and Hearing humour? What is the play frame and how do we communicate that to our Deaf client? Dr Dickinson covers this and so much more in her 2 hour webinar.
