The debilitating effects of problematic moods on music therapy clients undermine a desire for positive life connections. Music 4 Life® Music Medicine Practitioners will share case studies to illuminate the effectiveness of Mood Sequence Formulas™ within music therapy sessions working with anger, anxiety, loss, and depression.
- Participants will be able to identify at least two of the basic tenants of a Mood Sequence Formula™.
- Participants will be able to identify at least three problematic moods where a Mood Sequence Formula™ would be effective.
