February 23 – Author Book Signing

February 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

About this event

For the first time, Dr. Concetta Tomaino, a pioneer in the field of music therapy. shares more than 40 years of clinical and research experience–not just with Music Therapists but also with healthcare leaders, clinicians, and direct care staff. The book, Music has Power ® in Senior Wellness and Healthcare: Best Practices from Music Therapy is now available for sale.

With chapters on mental health and wellness, dementia, movement rehabilitation (for stroke and Parkinson’s disease) and speech rehabilitation (for aphasia) this comprehensive and friendly practice guide will help everyone on the team use music therapy best practices to provide better, more fulfilling caregiving, across all senior healthcare settings.

While music activities are ever present in most care settings, these activities don’t provide the therapeutic benefits that are possible with music therapy-informed interventions and programs. Today best practices from music therapy are transforming dementia care, and have the potential to improve healthcare—and health—for older people, whatever their needs, wherever they receive care.

Dr. Concetta Tomaino is the Executive Director, and co-founder (with renowned neurologist and author, Oliver Sacks) of the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF). Internationally known for her research in the clinical applications of music and neurologic rehabilitation, Dr. Tomaino received the United Nations’ Music Therapists for Peace Award of Accomplishment, and her work has been featured on 48 Hours,60 Minutes, and internationally on the BBC and CBC. Connie Tomaino is a visionary and leader in the field of music therapy, and here she shares her vast knowledge and clinical experiences with the rest of us in this compelling book. From senior care facilities, to drum circles, rehabilitation, and personal wellness, Music Has Power provides an overview of best practices and the latest knowledge on the therapeutic potential of music.

Dr. Tomaino will present a brief overview and will sign books. Books will be available for sale at the book signing, or you can purchase in advance at Amazon or using this link:
