Description of Presentation:

“Stand in the back and mouth the words”. That is what my son was told right before his 5th grade music program. He hasn’t sung since. How many of us feel like our voices have been lost or stolen at some point? The truth is nobody has the right to steal your voice! Our voices are an integral part of who we are and our individual identity. Through myriad reasons, many individuals with eating disorders struggle to feel like they have a voice and that their voice matters. Through the use of research-based findings, case studies, and experiential learning, this webinar will address the how’s, the why’s and the phenomenal results of reclaiming voice using music therapy.
