Integrative Medicine Settings: Music-Centered Wellness
MusicWorx Toolbox Series
By Barbara Reuer, PhD, NMT, MT-BC

This is the second book in the MusicWorx Toolbox series.  This toolbox has been field tested and developed over a seven-year period from work at the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in La Jolla, California.  The group for whom these sessions were designed includes people participating in a 12-week lifestyle change and/or Healing Hearts programs.  Those in the medicine profession are increasingly supporting integrative and holistic approaches to overall health.  These twelve session plans address the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of the participants.  Participants are introduced to exciting interactive and applicable uses of music as a part of a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.

The toolbox includes:

  • 12 detailed session plans with lists of necessary supplies, easy-to-read session format, and other resources (books, CDs, etc.)
  • Over 30 handouts with resource lists, songs, articles, and at-home exercises
  • User-friendly CD with handouts in color for all 12 sessions
  • CD for use in week# 12: "Hope and Managing Anxiety"

Uses for the toolbox:

  • While working with groups specifically in an intergrative medicine setting
  • As a template for other music-centered wellness groups
  • For individual session plans which may be easily adapted to meet the needs of your unique clients
  • As a resource for engaging and informational approaches to intentional listening, active music making, relaxation, songwriting, and much more
