Mindful Music Meditation: Ancient Sound & Rhythm for Rest, Focus & Rejuvenation
How can we remain clear and calm inside when everything around us feels overstimulating or anxiety-provoking? Join us in this self-care session for a restful and deeply satisfying meditative experience. This experiential journey of ancient sounds and rhythms sung into a biblical drum replenishes energy and clears the mind for creative thinking and decision making. Wordless vocals bypass intellect, release tension. Rhythm grounds the body.
8:30 AM—8:45 AM Bring in the Artist Stat! A New Model for Patient Care
Julia Langley will discuss new research showing that the inclusion of artists as medical team members opens up a new channel for communication between patients and their care teams allowing for highly personalized care to be delivered. In addition, the arts access the creative and whole aspects of patients, a critically important part of delivering high quality, interdisciplinary care.
1. Learn to assess what types of artist encounters are beneficial to both patients and to their care teams.
8:45 AM—9:00 AM Artful Healing: Supporting Life Transitions Using Digital Storytelling and Music
When children and families are in a time of significant change, stress, transition, joy, or pain, they are often searching for ways to make meaning of and process their experience. Through art, patients are able to regain control of their story and express themselves in a humanistic way. We will share case studies demonstrating the process of supporting an individual through a life event and how this can be coordinated in an inpatient medical setting.
1. Participants will be able to summarize the benefit of creative arts therapies as a tool for coping support and feel confident in disseminating this knowledge at their home facility
