Music Therapy and Neuro-disability: an Exploration of the Benefits of Joint Working
This one-day course is open to anyone working with individuals with an acquired brain injury and neurodegenerative diseases, who want to increase their clinical skills and knowledge of this population. The focus of the day will be primarily on joint clinical work where there is a partnership involving music therapy and its associated techniques. Joint work has been found to be beneficial for patients to achieve their goals/potential.
We welcome music therapists who have experience, or are interested, in joint working and clinicians who have experience working with music therapists or would like to learn more about music therapy in the field. Students are also welcome.
The day will consist of oral presentations, including information on the brain functions and the process of music in the brain. Joint work will be demonstrated with clinical case studies covering a number of domains and contexts. There will be time for discussion and networking.
Presenters will include members of the multi-disciplinary team from the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability and experts from other organisations.
