Radford University Music Therapy Symposium
8 CMTEs, 0 CPEs for LCATs

Radford University is happy to announce the Spring 2017 Annual Music Therapy Symposium, April 13 and 14, 2017. We are very excited to host Dr. Joanne V. Loewy, D.A., LCAT, MT-BC. Dr. Loewy is the Director of the Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine at Mt Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, and has more than 20 years of experience as a music therapist working with adults, children, and infants in medical settings.

In addition to the broad ranging topic of “Medical Music Therapy”, this symposium will specifically address the following course objectives:

  1. Attendees will define how to musically entrain with rhythm, breath, and tone and how interaction with music enhances neurobehavioral development in patients of varying diagnoses.
  1. Attendees will describe three signal features of pain and how they will assess stress through audio sensitivity.
  1. Attendees will identify how to observe problems in the patient-significant other interaction-as elicited through tough disease statuses.
  1. Attendees will define how physiologic measures might be used to assess caregiver sensitivity.
  1. Attendees will evaluate caregiver (staff and familial) sensitivity and how it might be correlated with vagal tone, a physiologic index of emotion regulation.

The Radford University Music Therapy Symposium is approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for 8 Continuing Music Therapy Education credits. The MAR-AMTA (P#065) maintains responsibility for program quality and adherence to CBMT policies and criteria.
