Sharpening Focus – Fine Tuning Therapeutic Listening Progressions – Live Webinar w/ Recording

May 15, 2023

| $200

Recording Access Available!

Advanced Therapeutic Listening® to address Attention, Learning & Praxis difficulties

‘Sharpening Focus’ takes you beyond the basics of matching music to a client’s needs and teaches an understanding of the specific use and application of a variety of electronic modifications of sound. This course will assist the practitioner trained in the basics of modulated music to gain a deeper knowledge of how challenges with audition and auditory processing disrupt attention, learning, and praxis. All aspects of the advanced use of Therapeutic Listening will be explored. While the focus will be on the Fine Tuning libraries, we will also discuss clinically reasoning when to use selections from the various libraries (Modulated, Fine Tuning, Spatially Enhanced and Quickshifts), as well as, how to effectively blend them into an individualized treatment protocol. In addition, a new tool, the Forbrain®, will be introduced for use in Therapeutic Listening protocols. Case and video presentations will be featured to show practical, clinical applications.

Who Should Attend:
Professionals who have attended our introductory course and who are trained Therapeutic Listening Practitioners.

Participants will receive a Certification in Therapeutic Listening (Advanced – Fine Tuning Music). This course provides participants with the necessary background information to immediately begin incorporating additional Therapeutic Listening progressions into their programs.

Take an additional discount of $15 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously under the same web-order.
