Music therapist Marlon Sobol gave a demonstration on the clinical application of the Keep on Moving -- Music for Therapeutic Rhythmic Activities CD at the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) conference in Atlanta last month.
The CD, which uses familiar music to enhance overall health and well-being while strengthening relationships between caregivers and patients, was released by Sobol in collaboration with the IMNF and is now being used at all Beth Abraham Family of Health Services facilities. The AMTA conference annually attracts more than 3,000 participants. IMNF Executive Director Dr. Connie Tomaino and AMTA past president was also present. Topping a very exciting year for music therapy, Tomaino accepted an AMTA recognition award on behalf of Jim Kohl berg, director of The Music Never Stopped, and also spoke about Rebuilding the Injured Brain Through Music.
