Course: Holding, playing and exploring: Music and action based strategies for self-reflection and supervision
 
Following the hui day, Claire Molyneux will be offering the above course on Sunday 21 August. More detailed information can be found here, but Claire’s short description of the course is as follows: 
 
The concept of holding is central to my work as a music therapist and supervisor. Starting from an exploration of this concept, we will discuss what is needed to create a safe trusting space in which therapists can share, discuss, analyse and reflect on clinical work. This workshop will offer practical ideas and techniques for exploring clinical work and other issues that impact on this. Music-based and action-based strategies will be explored with the aim of adding to participants’ kete of resources to be used for self-reflection and in supervision settings.
