Meet the experts

The committee

The importance of a human-centred approach

The demand for therapeutic clown visits has increased considerably in recent years. Indeed, many health and education professionals understand and value the importance of a human-centred approach in their treatment or intervention plans.

The Dr. Clown Foundation has established a committee of recognized health experts whose role is to help the Foundation develop its expertise and ensure that our service is of a consistently high quality.

The committee is made up of professionals who believe in the benefits of Dr. Clown’s approach and who have agreed to act as proud advocates and supporters of the Foundation.
