In this Mindstorm Monday we shout out: Institute for Therapy Through the Arts (ITA)!
Take a look at the amazing choir in the video below. This is no ordinary choir; all its members have Parkinson’s disease. They are participating in Creative Arts for Parkinson’s, a music and drama therapy program offered through Northwestern’s Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center.
Creative Arts for Parkinson’s is lead by specially trained music and drama therapists from the Institute for Therapy through the Arts (ITA). The participants are asked to reach deep into their emotions and to apply themselves physically to achieve the therapeutic benefits which address both the symptoms of the disease and its psychological burden.
Have you ever wondered how to approach interdisciplinary collaboration? Look no further – we have answers for you. In this episode of Mindstorm Monday we feature members of a talented team of creative arts therapists from the Institute for Therapy through the Arts.
