References to items on the Board Certification Domains are based on the Practice Analysis Study of 2019. Those registered for MusicWorx Toolbox: Music Therapy with Older Adults will develop or improve their abilities to use music therapeutically in older adult settings for both individual and group sessions. Participants will learn about implementation and structure of therapy techniques and how to implement the methods in an effective manner.
