Using the Voice for Embodied Healing
Time & Location
USING THE VOICE FOR EMBODIED HEALING
PRESENTER: JULIE LIPSON, MA, MT-BC
How does the voice function as part of the body? How do clients' literal and metaphorical voices intersect and how can this information be used for healing?
This workshop will combine group experientials, music therapy theory, and case examples to provide participants with an embodied glimpse into their own voice, and creative interventions that can be used in therapeutic settings.
The voice is a vulnerable topic! If upon reading this workshop description, you thought, "but I can't sing!" please be assured that all experientials will be held in a safe and supportive space, with NO emphasis on talent or musical experience.
From attendance at this event, participants will be able to:
a) Describe their own voice as part of their embodied experience.
b) Describe how the literal and metaphorical voice are related.
c) Describe vocal experiences as they apply to group work.
1.5 CE credits for Psychologists, Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists, & Professional Counselors - $15 for members/$25 for non-members, payable by CHECK at event. This program is FREE to attend if not obtaining CE credits.
