INTEGRATING MUSIC THERAPY AND MOVEMENT
The workshop offers knowledge and skills based on evidence based clinical music therapy intervention.The objective of the workshop is to enable the professionals to lead individuals in a creative and unique “Therapeutic Music Making Process”. Professionals are offered tools to lead and facilitate a music making session with the awareness and knowledge of therapeutic use of music.Professionals will receive practical ways to work in a non-directive client centered approach.
The discipline of music therapy uses movement inmost sessions. Playing any instrument usually requires small or big movements. Other activities,such as singing, also require movements as participants use their mouths and vocal chords. For instance, when applying music therapy with patients with Parkinson’s disease, the therapist may support the participants to control their muscle movements by encouraging them to play the drum to a steady beat or rhythm. The participants are often able to control their muscle movements when focusing on the music the therapist provides. Various music and movement activities are used with individuals with autism and learning difficulties in order to help them become more self-aware and aware of others.
It is to be clarified that this module of workshop has been developed to offer an additional “add on”training for helping professionals. This program does not certify to be/work as a clinical music therapist.
