We’ve just added a new concurrent session that will not be in the program. Please take note:

EighthNotesExamining the effects of Music Psychotherapy on Anxiety: Creative, clinical improvisation within the Multiple Single Subject Design

Sunday, November 24 – 8:00 – 9:00 am.

City Terrace 6 – 3rd Floor

Presenter: Rebecca Zarate, PhD, LCAT, MT-BC

This presentation will describe and shed light on the creative ways that quantitative research can be designed and implemented. The SSD design is not typically used in our field within the quantitative paradigm, and this presentation offers a chance for students and professionals to learn more about its relevance to the clinical aspect of the work and bridge the gap between content value and design in experimental clinical research. Incorporating psychodynamic, process-oriented clinical improvisational work within certain designs, such as the SSD allows for scientific enquiry at the same time providing a forum for the essence of music centered approach to working with individuals in a range of settings. Diagrams, music vignettes, and discussion will be incorporated.
