The workshop is based on contemporary research showing how teens are attracted and connected to music from many perspectives. Biologically, music affects our brain structure and connections promoting neural changes and regulation, activating various centers and creating neural connections. Socially music is a means for social connection, belonging, shaping personal identity, and exploring the self. Emotionally music can be an outlet for overwhelming emotions and mood swings, promoting expression of feelings in compatible ways. Spiritually music evokes ideas, values, beliefs about life and living. Music is a connection to movement, creativity, life, and life energy. It is an easy and comfortable way to connect to the dark sides and challenges which emerge at adolescence.
The workshops will address the personal iceberg, peer and family relationships, as well as social competence for promoting healthy teen development and relationships. The sessions will consider individual therapy, dyads of parent-teen, family sessions and groups.
Musical interventions include the creative use of music, songs, poetry, voice and improvisations. The workshop will engage with the ‘real’ and virtual worlds of music for promoting diverse goals in creative therapeutic experiences. Participants do not necessarily need a musical background or expertise. More importantly, they must possess an inner ability to be playful and be open to a new shared experience.
