Beatles, Bachata & Bollywood: Multicultural Music Therapy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 802

Is music therapy universal? How do Western approaches to music and music therapy translate to non-Western cultures? This 90-minute workshop will examine our implicit cultural understandings of the arts, with a focus on music through a multicultural lens. Participants will be invited to reflect on their own cultural connections to the arts, and consider how the clinical use of music can attend to clients of diverse cultural backgrounds. The practice of music therapy with Latino communities in particular will be discussed, as well as the use of music as a therapeutic tool in Southern India. Participants will learn tools and techniques for expanding their musical repertoire, and will learn how the therapeutic use of rhythm, sound, and voice can be made effective in working with people of all cultures.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
