This seminar will introduce practitioners to the ways in which music can be used in psychological practice, with a particular focus on two therapeutic functions: client engagement with therapy (especially group therapy), and facilitating client emotional experiencing and regulation. We will discuss how to assess your clients’ involvement with and sensitivity to music, and explore ways that music can be used to enhance wellbeing in (non-clinical) samples as well as how to use music with clinical samples to address issues such as student assignment anxiety, avoidance of exposure tasks in social phobia, metal music for anger processing, emotional awareness and regulation in young people excluded from school, music as a cue for substance use, and choir singing to promote social connectedness and wellbeing in adults with chronic mental illness. 


Each event will be hosted at Benchmark Psychology.  Numbers are strictly limited, so please REGISTER to confirm availability.
