Exploring Therapeutic Listening in Practice: A Mentorship Series
September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CDT
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Monday, repeating until October 10, 2022
The Listening with the Whole Body Course is Just the Beginning.
Join the Vital Links Team for the evolution of Therapeutic Listening with the upcoming small group Mentorship series. In this video, Sheila and Tracy share the background regarding the aim of this series and the goal of partnering with the Vital Links community to support the implementation of Therapeutic Listening among practitioners. We hope you can join us!
Formalized mentorship opportunities provide a platform for practicing therapists to expand their skills, participate in rich discussions, and enhance their clinical reasoning process to ultimately support professional growth and development. This Therapeutic Listening® mentorship series will explore the use and clinical applications of all the Therapeutic Listening libraries among participants who have previously completed the ‘Listening with the Whole Body’ training course.
Participants will need to submit one case, over the course of the series, where Therapeutic Listening has been utilized as part of a larger treatment protocol. Participants will be encouraged to utilize a provided case presentation template (including initial assessment findings, key insight gained from the Functional Listening Questionnaire and caregiver/client interview, and individualized music progressions) to share their own cases and accompanying questions related to the individualized implementation of Therapeutic Listening with their clients.
To support the translation of research into practice, participants will also examine the existing research on Therapeutic Listening and analyze how this information may influence future clinical use of this therapeutic tool. Each session, instructors will provide adjunct lectures and clinical case examples on topics related to the successful implementation of Therapeutic Listening and expanding clinical reasoning skills, including case-study examples of how different clinical pictures benefit from different Therapeutic Listening progressions and unique elements of music; identifying and combining complementary therapeutic treatments with Therapeutic Listening; and the importance of understanding state and arousal regulation when matching music. By the end of this interactive series, instructors aim to expand and broaden therapists’ use and understanding of Therapeutic Listening to enrich their own clinical practice.
*This is a small group learning experience, seats are limited, and live course attendance is expected. While all participants are required to submit one case during the series, all cases may not be presented within the live mentorship group.
Participants are required to have taken at least the ‘Listening with the Whole Body’ course prior to attending the mentorship series. However, as the case examples are not limited to only the modulated music, completion of the training courses pertaining to the Quickshifts, Spatially Enhanced, and Fine-Tuning selections are recommended.
