MUTY 620 Vocal Psychotherapy Practice

Students will be trained in vocal psychotherapy, a model of in-depth (reconstructive) music therapy that utilizes sounds, vocal improvisation, songs and dialogue within a therapeutic relationship to promote intrapsychic and interpersonal change. Students will have opportunities to observe, participate in and conduct voice-centered therapeutic experiences and interventions. They will also become experienced in transitioning between musical interventions and verbal interventions. The course format includes lecture, review of assigned readings, demonstration, peer teaching and participation in individual and group vocal psychotherapy exercises and experiences.
