The final webinar in Umind’s “The Power of …” webinar series focusing on complimentary approaches to youth mental health.

In this webinar, the power of music and its effects on children and youth mental health will be explored with concrete examples from the Music Therapy Program at Lutherwood. Brian, Lutherwood’s music therapist will identify and give examples of primary treatment interventions including: song-writing; improvisation; lyric analysis; singing; and modified/adapted instrument instruction.

Examples of treatment goals facilitated using the described interventions will also be provided. Brian will explain the efficacy of music therapy as a form of treatment and why youth connect so strongly to music. Brian will recount specific success stories in music therapy with this population as well as provide youth testimonials from their participation in treatment.

This webinar is hosted by Umind.
