Just a Moment: the healing power of music on the brain for children, adolescents and their families

Presenter: – Joy Hasler MA

A presentation/workshop about using musical exploration, rhythmic responses and improvisation to help heal and transform the effects of developmental trauma and dissociation.

In the workshop we will look at the healing properties of music, how music is processed in the brain and how sequencing, turn taking and rhythmic play can help develop trust in key attachment relationships.

This workshop is open to all and no musical skills are required.
