9This is a two day training program for counselors, occupational therapists and other support personal wishing to incorporate the healing power of accessible music making into their practice. This is an evidence based approach endorsed by staff from the center of clinical excellence and supported by several independent research studies showcasing improvements in psychological health and reductions in anxiety and depression.
This two day workshop will equip participants with a wide range of exercises to address social and emotional issues through the friendly and safe interface of participatory rhythmic music (drum-circle format). Links are made between the musical activities and real life scenarios to broaden perspective and offer new pathways forward for people facing social and emotional challenges. In particular many exercises focus on improving social confidence and reinforcing the elements that support healthy relationships. Additionally this training utilizes the impact of rhythm on the primal brain to help increase emotional control.
