Program Description

The goal of this experiential workshop is to familiarize professionals with the power of integrating music with Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy. Music is used to address personal and interpersonal goals. Musical interventions provide new skills which can be implemented in clinical work with individuals, couples and families. Music provides a relaxed and fun space for creative expression in the process of growth and change.

This 2-day musical workshop is a unique opportunity for personal and professional development. It provides professionals with an array of experiential exercises using musical instruments, recorded and improvised music, songs, and voice.

Prior musical background is not required!

  • Musical coping stances

Using musical instrument, voice and movement the stances come alive. Adding a new and unique musical component to Satir’s coping stances will help explore their impact on communication and relationships. Harmony, balance, congruence and peace gain new significance.

  • Musical sculpting

Musical instruments act as catalysts for surfacing our childhood experiences. Sculpting with Music helps externalize our internal iceberg, family dynamics, communication, interactions and family roles which offers an innovative nonverbal experience of the impacts of our family of origin and an opportunity to let go of past negative impacts experiences.

  • Musical Mandala

A musical exploration of personal resources. We will use music to explore and create our Musical Mandala of resources, becoming aware of their inter-balance and relationships.  Improvising with new options for employing our internal resources, seeking musical and internal balance and harmony.

  • Our Many Voices

The voice is a mirror to our soul and reflects our self. Singing and vocal expression is an ancient healing practice, many cultures teach us to avoid vocalizing as an expression of our self. The objective of this experience is to raise awareness to our personal voice as part of who we are. New experiences broaden our possibilities and choice-making that transforms and empowers our voice. It is an important step for self-revelation and acquiring inner harmony, self-acceptance and personal growth.
