Course # 76821 • Incorporating Musical Strategies into Clinical Practice

Overview

Music has been a centerpiece of the human experience for thousands of years. Music is a critical part of celebrations and rituals all over the world, and most people would feel lost, on some level, without some type of music in their lives. An understanding of the neurological response to psychotherapy will allow clinicians to bring music into the therapeutic process to unify the components of the triune brain. In addition to elucidating some of the foundations of music and the brain, this course will offer numerous practical strategies that can be incorporated into all facets of treatment: initial stabilization, processing/working through past material, and helping clients return to optimal functioning.
