Intro to Sound Healing for Psychotherapists and Other Health Professionals
Online training with CE & psychodrama credits 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 21, 2021
Healing with sound – a wide-ranging description of the use of drums, tuning forks, singing bowls and often the voice – is a growing phenomenon in the world of alternative healing.
It’s been the topic of articles in The New York Times, and greater numbers of trauma therapists, like physician Bruce Perry, are noting the importance of rhythm to calm the anxious and traumatized brain.
“The only way to move from these super-high anxiety states, to calmer more cognitive states, is rhythm,” he says. “Patterned, repetitive rhythmic activity: walking, running, dancing, singing, repetitive meditative breathing – you use brain stem-related somatosensory networks which make your brain accessible to relational (limbic brain) reward and cortical thinking.”
Sound therapy is different from music therapy.
In this online training workshop, presented by Lana Ryder, AADP, SHA, HTA, Reiki teacher, musician and sound healer, and Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we will demonstrate how mental health professionals and other health and helping professionals and educators may integrate simple techniques using sound into their sessions to promote calm and health while also using sound as part of their personal self-care practice.
In addition to didactic information about the history of sound healing and how sound and vibration can be used to calm the nervous system and the body, participants will have the opportunity to have a hands-on experiences to feel the brain-shifting effects of sound with the use of tuning forks, drums, gongs, singing bowls and the voice.
In this workshop you will learn:
Tuition is $55, if reserved by May 19, $65 after, and will include a generous variety of online handouts, including a slide show and a variety of links and videos, which you may retrieve online and download as you wish. Participants will also receive plus three CE credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and psychologists and three psychodrama credits and Act 48 hours.
The training is appropriate for mental health and other health professionals, addictions counselors, educators, life and wellness coaches, clergy, creative arts therapists, alternative practitioners, yoga teachers, massage therapists and bodyworkers, community activists and professionals who work in social services programs as well as advanced students.
You may also have the option to address personal issues in a confidential setting and network with other professionals who are interested in alternative, experiential and action methods.
What to bring
To prepare yourself for this class, we also recommend that you watch this YouTube video about sound and vibrational therapy given by Bruce Lipton here.
If you do not have a tuning fork and wish to learn how to use your tuning fork during the training, you may order a high-quality tuning fork set (both weighted and unweighted) at this site. If you wish to purchase only one fork, Lana recommends the weighted fork 128 or 136.1 frequencies. Weighted forks are designed for working on the body and excellent for self-care for muscle tension, edema and calming. Non-weighted forks are designed for working in the body’s energy field and excellent for clearing layers of the field, clearing space and calming.
