Catharsis Productions brings a profound passion to starting important conversations about sexual assault, harassment, racial discrimination and violence. And we do it in a very unexpected way. Our engaging programs get students, military personnel and employees talking, sharing and yes – even laughing – about the behaviors, stereotypes and cultural attitude that contribute to these social problems. Our approach is fully supported by research in education, psychology and cognition and led by trained educators who also happen to be dynamic, charismatic speakers. It all boils down to a proven, simple truth: laughter and honesty have the power to initiate change.
