Description

How can we age well? Through music, of course! In this highly-interactive workshop, explore the theoretical constructs of gerotranscendence and integrity vs despair through music-based experiences, using the music of older adult performers. Leave with new knowledge of how to facilitate music experiences to help older adults live their final years.

Objectives:

Objective 1: Participants will describe the three main parts of Tornstam’s theory of gerotranscendence and how this theory informs their music therapy work. (CBMT Board Certification Domains I.D.4, 8-10, II.A.4.D)

Objective 2:  Participants will describe Erik Erikson’s eighth stage of development and how this theoretical construct informs their music therapy work. (CBMT Board Certification Domains I.D.4, 8-10, II.A.4.D)
