Music as a Care Tool


Learn how to integrate a variety of music-centred activities and approaches into the day-to-day lives of your clients.  Staff from all departments—including management, maintenance, nursing, and more—can play an important role in incorporating music as a core care tool.  In addition to outlining the multifaceted benefits of using music for therapeutic outcomes, staff will participate in a variety of hands-on activities to illustrate the theories discussed.  The goal of this workshop is to assist staff in developing high-quality, effective, concrete, ready-to-implement strategies specific to the needs of their facility and the clients served.
