Tuesday, September 1st (Session B5) Tap into Something Deeper: Clinical Art Therapy & Personalized Music Together

Session B5

Discover what happens when you bring two life-changing, evidence-based, companion programs together.  Clinical art therapy is not an “arts and crafts” program used for distraction purposes; it is a dignifying, fine arts program used for self-expression while stimulating brain activity. Personalized music rates #1 as the only stimulus that activates the entire brain. Our most personal life experiences and memories, intertwined with our music, are "tucked safely away" in the last part of the brain affected by dementia. Together, these programs validate the arts as an effective and innovative approach in promoting health, improved treatment outcomes, wellbeing and quality of life.

1. To improve the standards in medical disciplines in dementia care.
2. To provide a greater understanding and appreciation of how the brain interrelates with subconscious and conscious thought.
3. Name at least one significant benefit of personalized music for chronic as well as acute conditions in any care setting or at home.
4. Name at least two ways personalized music provides respite, hope and eases care burdens for at-home family caregivers.
