Do I need musical training?

Not at all! The Group Music-Integrated Therapy Training program meets you musically, wherever you are.

Whether you're someone who's never picked up a musical instrument, a highly trained musician, or anywhere in between, you will learn to integrate music into your sessions in a way that is congruent with your unique musicality and strengths.

How Does It Work?

Simply pick the track that you’ll be studying:

If you have previous musical training >>

You will learn to integrate one of music listening, composition/songwriting, improvisation, or music re-creation.

If you have no previous musical training >>

You will integrate clinical music listening experiences into your work. Depending on you and your clients, this includes one or more of: guided imagery to music; creating therapeutic playlists; musical life-review; exploring topics through familiar songs; and self-expression through found music.
