Creating Comedy Out of Crisis: A Humorist's Response to the Near-Death Experience
Kimberly Clark Sharp, M.S.W.

Recently billed by Chicago-IANDS as a "near-death comedienne," Kimberly will share the outright funny aspects of her NDE and its aftereffects. She will also add some amusing incidents from the near-death experiences of NDErs she has come to know since she founded Seattle-IANDS in 1982. Renowned for delivering serious information in comical packages, Kimberly will address the 'usefulness of goofiness' as a coping mechanism. She hopes to send the audience away with strategies that can be used to "create comedy out of crisis."

Kimberly Clark Sharp received her Master of Social Work from the University of Washington in 1976, pioneered the field of Critical Care Social Work, and founded the Department of Social Work at the world's first bone marrow transplant center. She was Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington for over twenty years, and was named one of the forty most influential people under the age of 40 in the Pacific Northwest in 1987. In 1995, she authored After the Light and has published articles in many journals, textbooks and magazines. She frequently speaks at conferences worldwide, and is often called upon as a consultant to the news and entertainment industry as a spokesperson for the near-death experience. Kimberly considers her greatest accomplishments that of being a cancer survivor and a happy wife and mother.
