Co-Creative Music: Inviting the Intuitive Inner Child to Invigorate Your Clinical Practice

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

ROOM 703

In this 90-minute workshop, we will discuss a range of therapeutic applications for co-creative music with a variety of ages and populations, and engage in musical activities that demonstrate how this process works. Improvised songs by children, in particular, can bring you to tears, induce belly laughs, and help you connect with your own emotions and inner child archetype. The universal truths they reveal can be quite dynamic, and often generate a sense of renewal in the listener. As such, they can enhance clinical creativity in your practice, and provide a new tool for managing countertransference and dealing with everyday challenges. No musical experience necessary. Appropriate for working with clients of all ages and abilities.

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