It is increasingly clear that the impact of therapy extends far beyond the words spoken in your sessions. This course is designed to stretch your abilities as a listener and to help you create a more complete therapeutic environment in your practice. You'll learn how to use music, sound, and silence to improve every session and how to become more attuned to the rhythmic systems of the body and the breath. You will come away with an enhanced ability to make a sonic assessment of your waiting room and office, and an understanding of how to use music to improve clarity and focus in each session. You'll also learn techniques of guided imagery with music that reduce stress, empower your clients, and deepen the impact of their work with you. The fee includes 3 music CDs, which are the course materials.
