What do we tell Hospice patients who ask us to use our music therapy tools for their spiritual healing towards the great transition? Cultural hu-mility and responsiveness ask us to provide an appropriate response largely unfettered to our own spiritual bias. A scientific underpinning of the notions we call “Soul”, “God”, “Spirit”, and “Life Beyond Death” may help us in that response and temper our own spiritual eagerness, so that we include a spiritual aspect in the music-therapeutic intervention.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Participants will identify three (3) scientific definitions, one each for “soul”, “spirit”, and ”god” for future culturally appropriate as-sessments. (II. B. 3)
  2. Participants will identify three (3) ways in which scientific evidence of “soul”, “spirit”, and “god” affect their authentic therapeutic be-havior to conduct themselves in an authentic, ethical, accountable, and culturally sensitive manner that respects privacy, dignity, and human rights. (V. B. 2)

Music Therapy must be safe to do not harm. As music therapists, we are tasked to know which sounds and interventions are beneficial to our clients. New data from physics and neuroscience show that certain sounds and frequencies are more effective than others. This course will present new insights into neural structures from the human connectome project, that can be applied to generate a new understanding of neurodiversity. The course will explore the musical structure of the brain through its metric topology.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will identify five (5) modalities with which therapeuticapplication of music benefits neurodiverse brains of clients. (V. A.2)

Participants will identify two (2) ways to ensure advocacy-baseddocumentation and medical correspondence. (V.B.10)

Participants will identify three (3) ways in which their own valuescan be incorporated into their interventions for the benefit of theirneurodiverse client. (V.B.11)

The State of California has issued a ground-breaking rule sure to be fol-lowed by other Regional states in the near future that includes eligibility for infants and toddlers for disability services if they are assessed having "a developmental delay in one or more of the following six areas: cogni-tive development; physical and motor development, including vision and hearing; expressive communication development; receptive communica-tion development; social or emotional development; or adaptive develop-ment. Developmentally delayed infants and toddlers are those who are de-termined to have a significant difference between the expected level of development for their age and their current level of functioning. This de-termination shall be made by qualified personnel who are recognized by, or part of, a multidisciplinary team, including the parents. A significant difference is defined as a 25-percent delay in one or more developmental areas.” This raises the question: who is qualified personnel to make that assessment” Music therapists have worked with non-verbal clients since the inception of music therapy in the USA, creating a strong body of re-search demonstrating its efficacy. On the other hand, the education com-munity relies on standardized tools such as the Desired Results Develop-mental Profile (DRDP), a national standard for developmental assess-ments. This workshop teaches music therapists how to utilize the tools of

the DRDP, apply them to an assessment, and deliver their report to a mul-tidisciplinary team including the pediatrician.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Participants will use the DRDP domain tests and the Murakami Music Therapy and Harm Model to identify at least one (1) adver-sity to music therapy, and design off-ramping warm-hand-off proto-cols to continue the client assessment within the multidisciplinary team without music therapy. (I. 5)
  2. Participants will demonstrate at least one (1) music therapy proto-cols that apply to DRDP Domain assessments. (II. A. 2)
  3. Participants will practice at least one (1) music therapy protocols that address the DRDP Domains and be able to identify at least (1) functioning levels based on music therapy protocols. (II. B. 3)
  4. Participants will demonstrate how to formulate at least two (2) eli-gibility reports following the assessment to recommend inclusion in or exclusion from DD/ID services as a member of the multidiscipli-nary team. (II. C. 3, 5)

*Ethics Credit


Music therapists are faced with ethical dilemmas frequently in clinical workplaces, advocacy, education, and more. Consultation and collabora-tion are key elements of ethical decision-making which makes this an ideal topic to discuss in a professional group setting such as a conference.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Participants will engage in at least one (1) practice of ethical deci-sion-making process (BCD V.B.2. & BCD V.B.10)
  2. Participants will collaborate with peers in at least one (1) profes-sional consultation regarding ethical principles (BCD V.A.1; BCD V.A.4 & BCD V.B.5)
