Tuning Relationships with Music® Level One training: Theory, Orientation and Assessment

Two day training: 22 November & 29 November 9:30am-1:30pm AEST with 30 minute breaks on both days


Vivienne is back with further training for the Victorian Branch:

This training comprises the first stage of clinical training in Tuning Relationships with Music®, and is a pre-requisite for Level Two, in which delivering the eight-session intervention is taught in detail. 
Level One will cover the following.

Research/evidence: Why is nonverbal communication important?
·      Research/evidence: Additional nonverbal communication challenges for families with a trauma history
·      Using music to understand parent-adolescent nonverbal interaction
·      Using music to understand nonverbal aspects of parent-adolescent conflict interaction
·      Clinical observation of client videos
Learning outcomes:
·      You will learn to deliver a music-based observational assessment tool with traumatised parents and their adolescents who are experiencing interpersonal difficulties and high levels of conflict
·      You will learn how to clinically observe music-based assessments of dyadic interaction and conflict interaction, and how to use this information to inform therapeutic intervention.
Participants will need bring some musical instruments that they can easily hold or place on their lap. Alternatively if all else fails (given life in lockdown may make it more difficult to procure instruments!) homemade instruments that make a range of sounds will be fine.
Instruments can include:-

Small drum
Rain stick
*Homemade alternatives could be – a jar or other container with rice or stones in it (shaker). Small saucepan and spoon (drum)! Metal cheese grater with metal knife/spoon (guiro). Two wooden spoons or wooden salad servers (clapsticks) etc etc.
