This session will introduce students to the evidence-based practice of music therapy, as it has evolved from a symptom-based therapy to one that champions wholeness, wellness and wellbeing. The presenter will explain some of the mechanisms underlying an integrative approach to music therapy and its most effective clinical strategies. In-vivo demonstrations with live music will enable participants to experience the latest and most effective music therapy interventions. Filmed case examples will demonstrate the impact of music therapy on patients with diverse diagnoses and symptomatology. Case material from oncology, geriatrics, palliative care and family medicine, in both inpatient and outpatient settings, will inform potential applications of the techniques. Participants will learn a number of music therapy strategies, and hear examples of songs written by patients.
