Self help is here!
Discover your own Character Traitors through AHH's unique Character Traitor Workshops
Humor is at the center of April Getz’s philosophy and believes that
it is one of the most powerful ways a person can self-explore
and enrich themselves. No one is one-dimensional and we
all have various traits, or sides of our personality.
For instance, there may be a judgmental version of yourself,
there might be a version of you that blames others for your
problems, there may also be part of you that is always
concerned with being right above all else.
April teaches you how to identify these different character traits through her Character Traitor Workshops; a unique and imaginary process in which you learn how to identify your traitors and their signs, converse and laugh with them and ultimately forgive and heal your inner self.
What to expect during and after the workshop?
During a one-on-one with April, you will identify your own character traitors and
turn them into an actual comical character. By doing so, you remove the barrier of self
and are able to converse with these various character traits directly.
April likes to turn this process into a humorous one, allowing individuals to explore,
express and interrogate these versions of themselves. By externalizing and exaggerating
these character traitors through comedic performance, you are more easily able
to recognize how these traits can negatively affect your life.
After the completion of the workshop the next time you are feeling judgmental,
you will know this character traitor and their traits and can use your emotional
roadmap to deal with them. In short, they will be like an old friend that you can predict
and work with or against, depending on the situation.
Throughout the process you can expect a dynamic, original, and most importantly,
humorous way to explore yourself!
When you know what you do,
then you can do what you know
humor can heal
"Humor is often a more effective tool for self-diagnosis and discovering self-awareness than it is
given credit for. After all, there is something to the old adage “each joke contains a grain of truth.”
Humor allows us to discuss the difficult, sometimes painful ideas and traits about ourselves. It helps
us realize what is important and how outrageous life can be. Humor is something that
I believe in and use it throughout all of my work.
Chances are you probably spend a lot of time arguing and conversing with your inner selves
already. By creating structure and applying methods to this, you can finally get at what has
been bothering you for so many years. You can literally argue with yourself! By emphasizing humor,
this exercise becomes more constructive and less destructive.
Whether it is from my Character Traitor workshop, video blog, or podcast, humor is the cornerstone of how I approach my work and passion. Talking to a characterized version of yourself may sound a bit silly, but all you have to do is read the testimonials to see how effective this method is".
