Music Therapy in Trauma (4 CMTEs/LCATs)
Friday, February 8, 2019, 8:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Public Square, Larini Room, Second Floor, Molloy College, Rockville Centre campus
Presenter: Jennifer Sokira, MMT, LCAT, MT-BC, Founder and Executive Director of Connecticut Music Therapy Services, LLC
This program will provide participants with a brief overview of trauma and the myriad of ways it impacts the clients with whom music therapists work. Grounded in the modern understanding that trauma is a whole-body experience, participants will increase their understanding of the neurobiological processes and symptoms of trauma, as well as provide concrete considerations for assessment and music therapy intervention. Further, this course will explore music therapy within the greater realm of trauma-informed care, as well as resiliency theory as it relates to both direct and vicarious trauma. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own experiences as they consider their self-care and vicarious resilience. Breakfast will be provided.

Participants will learn simple yet effective ways of facilitating groove-based music styles and improvisational techniques in including Blues, Rock, Hard Rock, Salsa, Reggae, Bossa Nova, Funk, and Hip-hop. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Click here for the conference webpage.
Saturday, April 27, 2019, 9:00 a.m. – 3:15 p.m., Public Square, Larini Room, Second Floor, Molloy College, Rockville Centre campus
Presenter: Inge Pederson, Aarborg University, Denmark
This workshop demonstrates an integrative theoretical foundation deeply rooted in a psychodynamic and relational understanding of the therapist-client musical relationship and highlights the further development of analytical and analytically oriented music therapy. Longitudinal case studies and vignettes can illustrate this relational understanding as a core element of the integrative approach. Further information can be found by clicking here.
