Working in Neurologic Rehabilitation Settings


This MusicWorx Toolbox is ideal for working in a neurologic rehabilitation setting. But the ideas are adaptable to fit almost any population, helping clients achieve cognitive, sensorimotor, speech and language, social, and emotional goals. These intervention ideas are thorough enough that music therapists may replicate them exactly to create successful therapeutic sessions. But they also may incorporate any therapist’s unique artistic interpretation. Expand on each session intervention to create up to one hour of equivalent topic therapeutic musical exercises. Or, use two or more interventions interchangeably to create a multi-dynamic session that can accommodate hours of exceptional music therapy interventions!

All MusicWorx Toolbox Self-Study Courses are approved by the CBMT for 15 Continuing Music Therapy Education ( CMTE ) credits. MusicWorx Inc., #P-097, maintains responsibility for program quality and adherence to CBMT policies and criteria.
