This workshop will look at clinical manifestations of anxiety and ways that stress and anxiety affect our own day-to-day living. The primary focus of the workshop will be on how music therapy can respond and assist in dealing with these anxiety-related situations and conditions. Various music therapy techniques will be utilized, including listening to music, improvisation, singing, and instrument playing. Format for the workshop will include didactic and experiential learning with some opportunity group discussions.
Anxiety can be crippling and prevent living a fulfilled life. It can also exacerbate another condition and make things worse than is necessary. For example, anxiety over an illness can complicate and interfere with medical treatment. Anxiety can interfere with getting a good night’s sleep as well as making concentration on various tasks difficult. It can immobilize and create a “gripped” experience that prevents one from moving forward with efforts to address challenges in his or her life.

As medical music therapy programs continue to be created and expanded
across the country, the most current information on evidence based music
therapy practices and procedures is needed for music therapists within and
outside of the medical profession. This presentation will cover evidence
based practice recommendations for procedural support music therapy, NICU
protocols, relaxation for stress and anxiety reduction for medical patients
and their loved ones, and referral pathways for communicating with medical
personnel. Theoretical foundations for each topic area will be discussed,
including the Berlyne’s Optimal Complexity Model, Bronfenbrenner’s
Socioecological Model, Altschuler’s Isoprinciple, Bandura’s Attachment
Theory, and neurodevelopmental models for infant cognition. Learning will be
supported interactively through technique practice, discussions, analysis,
