We are all screen fatigued & feeling the “Zoom Gloom!” Good news, though– music has this incredible power to get us out of our HEADS and into our BODIES.
You know this if you take a sensory approach to your work with kids, or if you have ever danced with a patient with dementia, or if you’ve ever drummed with groups in recovery. Take your sessions to the next level, and always OPEN with music!
Christine Stevens, MSW, MT-BC has been doing this for ten years with a million different populations, including survivors of war, refugees, people in recovery, hospice, child survivors of trauma, and more. This is why we love Christine! Listen in to some of her examples, apply this to your practice and let us know how it goes.
While you’re here, be sure to grab her Virtual Drum + Voice Session Plans packet, with tips for faciliation + a sample Zoom session from Kate Richards Geller, MA, MT-BC, LCAT. 👇👇
