Sheila M. Frick presents

Therapeutic Listening: Listening with the Whole Body

2nd & 3rd December 2017

Hornsby RSL, 4 High Street, Hornsby NSW

In this newly revised workshop, you will learn to use Therapeutic Listening modulated audio selections (available on CDs, digital music players and some mobile devices) to create individualized, home-based programs for clients. This course will provide a strong emphasis on practical application and explore the use of Therapeutic Listening within the context of multiple case studies. You will also learn how to implement Therapeutic Listening strategies in conjunction with postural, respiratory, and sensory activities. This course will take you through all of the steps, from assessment to outcomes, for creating complete Therapeutic Listening programs. Video case presentations will be used to illustrate points and show changes in individuals with listening and other sensory processing difficulties, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, apraxia, anxiety, and Down's Syndrome.

This workshop will be especially meaningful for professionals who have a background in sensory integration, including practitioners in schools, hospitals, and private clinics. Participants will gain the necessary background information to begin using Therapeutic Listening right away. The specialized headphones and digital music players or music albums required for Therapeutic Listening are available for purchase upon course completion.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
-Describe the relationship between listening and sensory integration.
-Identify individuals with sensory processing and listening difficulties who may respond well to Therapeutic Listening.
-Create Therapeutic Listening programs that are adapted to meet
specific needs of individual clients.
-Demonstrate understanding of the role of postural, respiratory, and sensory strategies that are part of the Therapeutic Listening program.

Registration:
Regular: $695
Early Bird: $645
