Joyce Saltman

Dr. Joyce Saltman, Ed.D.

Given the title “Guru Of Laughter” by one of America’s foremost Insurance Companies

Join me in welcoming Dr. Joyce Saltman on

A Humorous Look at Sex and Aging

Through a minimum of scientific data and a maximum of humor, this session will deal with the trials and tribulations of being a Senior! Combining research about this important topic for the “senior citizen” set (those of us who are old but not dead!), Joyce will show the beauty of having loving relationships rather than Olympic sex, how insignificant “perfect bodies” are (when our vision is not that good anyway!), and how to see all of our aging issues in a humorous light.


Dr. Joyce Saltman is a Professor Emeritus of Special Education at Southern Connecticut State University where she taught graduate courses on Special Education since 1975, and “The Enhancement of Learning through Humor,” as well as directing a summer Institute on Healing, Education, Laughter and Play (H.E.L.P.) for 29 summers. She lectures all over the country plus Japan, Norway, Australia, England, Italy and Belgium, on “Laughter, Rx for Survival,” “Dealing with Difficult People,” “Sex and Aging,” and “Learning Styles.”

She has shared her insights into ‘Laughter’ with hospitals, corporations, school systems, and other organizations throughout the world. She has spoken extensively on such topics as “Learning Styles for At-Risk Students” and “Counseling Skills for Special Educators” throughout the country, most notably for the US Department of Education in Washington, DC. In addition, she has had 2 books published – Sing A Celebration, published by Ivory Tower Press and I’m Changing the Locks and Cementing the Windows – What To Do When Your Kid Leaves Home, published by Kiwi Press. She has contributed chapters for several anthologies, including Chocolates for a Mother’s Heart, edited by Kay Allenbaugh, and most recently, Fast Funny Women, (2021)edited by Gina Barreca.

Of her greatest accomplishments, she lists 2 amazing children, grandchildren, grand-dogs, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) as well as the Outstanding Faculty Award from the Academy of Continuing Education at the Mandel Center.
