Voice Movement Therapy: An Introductory Master Class

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

They say language began as song. Throughout centuries and across cultures, song has been used to express joy, hope, grief, fears, and that which is unbearable to contain.  This introductory Master Class will combine therapeutic principles with breath, movement, imagery, and improvisation, to demonstrate how engaging the body and voice through song can liberate the self beyond ordinary words and language. Through the power of song, participants will be guided through a process of self-discovery and empowerment, and learn to harness the voice that resides within. Our voice is at once our unique signature—conveying emotional states, words and thoughts—it is also the mystery that emanates from within us. Come experience the richness of this most ancient communication tool and learn how it can used in the clinical setting with people of all ages and abilities. No experience necessary; if you have a voice, you can sing.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
