The Theory & Practice of Neurologic Music Therapy

Kathleen Howland, PhD, CCC-SLP, MT-BC & Brian Harris, MA, MT-BC

Thursday, November 12, 2015, 1:30- 6:30 pm (5 cr.)

Harris & Howland

 

We met in Greece, walked the Parthenon trail together. We talked about Neurologic Music Therapy and what it could do to help people optimize recoveries. We discussed ways that we could work together to bring this to fruition. And we looked at the amazing view across Athens from that ancient temple.

In this CMTE, we will bring to you the advancement of this conversation 5 years out. We will offer you our passion for the topic, our knowledge and experience of utilizing NMT techniques in a variety of populations. Come join us for an engaging day of dialogue covering current research, program implementation and the future Neurologic Music Therapy.

 

This differs from the NMT training in that we will not be teaching specific interventions; only the Academy can do that. This CMTE is designed to provide additional information and resources regarding up to date research, intervention adaptation for different populations, musicianship within NMT, implementing NMT programs, and what the future holds for NMT

 

This is sure to be a great course on a very popular topic, so sign up today!

  1. I’m incredibly interested in this course! I just completed the NMT training back in May and I was wondering what the main difference is between the training and this CMTE session. Would you be able to provide some more details, please? Thank you!

    1. Hi Kirsten, thank you for the question. This differs from the NMT training in that we will not be teaching specific interventions, only the Academy can do that. This CMTE is designed to provide additional information and resources regarding up to date research, intervention adaptation for different populations, musicianship within NMT, implementing NMT programs, and what the future holds for NMT. I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions!

      Best,
