The 15th World Congress: Pre-Congress Seminars: CMTE courses

Pre-Congress Seminar 1

Title It All Begins with the Music
- Developing your Clinical Skills through the Concepts of Neurologic Music Therapy -
Description Creativity and musicality drive music therapy, but developing interventions based on scientific, therapeutic, and musical logic is also an important aspect of effective therapy. Based on research in neurologic, physiological, and cognitive processes in music perception and production, Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) (Thaut, 1999) provides standardization of clinical techniques. A brief overview of several of the techniques will be provided, leading to an exploration of the Transformational Design Model (TDM) (Thaut, 2005). Video examples and live demonstration from the presenter’s clinical work in NMT will illustrate the vast possibilities of working within this paradigm. Special emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary co-treatment and community based therapy sessions. Participants will work towards increasing their use of musical elements to facilitate goal achievement.

Pre-Congress Seminar 4

Title How Music Helps: in music therapy and everyday life
- Exploring the 'how?' of music's help at micro, meso, and macro levels -
Description Increasingly music therapists and others working musically with people are interested in the continuities between how music helps us all in everyday life, and how we mobilize music's help in 'speciliast life'. The core of this interest is in the 'how?', the local craft of doing this work, and thinking professionally about it in ways that are more 'commonsense' - such that we can communicate more easily with clients, carers and fellow professionals. This presentation will explore the idea of a 'joined-up music therapy' that links micro and macro contexts through the idea of the 'meso' level of working. It draws from Nordoff Robbins, Community Music Therapy traditions, and 'commonsense' theory.

Pre-Congress Seminar 5

Title Music Therapy and Palliative Care for Pediatric Cancer Patients and Their Families
Description Palliative care is a comprehensive system of care that provides comfort, pain and symptom management, and psychosocial support to patients and families with potentially life-threatening or chronic illnesses. Participants learn how music therapy is being used to address psychosocial and symptom management needs of children and adolescents with cancer and their families. Using video case examples and research findings, we explore underlying theory, clinical processes, and outcomes for two interventions. The Therapeutic Music Video intervention uses songwriting/video production to improve positive health in adolescents/young adults during high risk cancer treatment. The Active Music Engagement intervention uses music-play to help young children and parents manage distress and improve health outcomes. Please join us as we examine how music therapy is addressing palliative care needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families.

Pre-Congress Seminar 7

Title First Sounds: Rhythm, Breath & Lullaby NICU Music Therapy Training
Description The intra-uterine sound environment leaves a wordless and amorphous memory trace which serves as a template for all future rhythmic response and provides us with a lifelong sound and rhythmic symbolic image of security, thereby providing for continuity between intra- and extra-uterine life. A range of philosophical and theoretical stances frame the application of music in the NICU and Special Care Nurseries. RBL champions live music making between infants and their caregiver and is informed by theories of healthy dyadic and triadic development, trauma amelioration, and neuropsychological development. RBL seeks to embrace models, which enable culturally sensitive applications rather than imposing a singular cultural model. We acknowledge a diversity of philosophical stances making it possible for the Rhythm, Breath, Lullaby program to support effective practice, Interventions for families of infants in the NICU encourage and support the caregiver-infant bonding process, provide trauma amelioration, and offer a means of coping.
