About this Webinar

This webinar will provide an overview of the role of the role of Neurologic Music Therapy and interdisciplinary partnerships for successful client impact in RI. The early intervention model will be used to discuss replicable options for programming as well as roles and responsibilities for each organization/provider.

Music is innate and preferred by the majority of the population.  Evidence based music therapy interventions engage multiple regions of the brain to elicit positive health and behavioral health change.  Hands in Harmony strives to increase impact through the formation of social groups to increase education and awareness and target the community at large.
