Enrollment limited.The practice of music therapy is gaining prominence in medicine, rehabilitation, and psychology. Broadly defined, music therapy is the use of music within the therapeutic relationship to facilitate healing of the body, mind, and spirit. This two-semester course includes an overview of music therapy as practiced in this country and abroad, theoretical concepts of music therapy with reference to different patient populations, and information about further training and job opportunities in the field. There is also an experiential component, in which students participate in clinically tested music therapy techniques such as guided imagery and music, group music therapy, and clinical improvisation. Special emphasis is given to the use of music therapy in treating stress-related disorders. As the term progresses, students are guided in developing fieldwork opportunities in the New York area. Certificate students must register in person with a certificate registration form signed by the program coordinator. For more information, call 212.229.5567 or email CATinfo@newschool.edu.
