Occupational therapy (OT) is a holistic profession, yet the scope of OT practice, the pace at which neuroscience is advancing, and the constraints of most healthcare settings can make it challenging for even advanced therapists to effectively incorporate both top-down and bottom-up treatment approaches while remaining rooted in well-grounded clinical reasoning. Music-based interventions are emerging as promising rehabilitation strategies. Moreover, music paired with movement is increasingly being used as an integrative, evidence-informed way to bridge physical, emotional, and cognitive health for clients of any age.

The first course of this two-part series summarizes evidence and knowledge from various fields of study, including neurobiology, polyvagal theory, and rehabilitation, to differentiate an integrative practice as essential and distinct from other models of practice. In the second course, learners will translate this content into all aspects of the therapeutic process with takeaways that are immediately actionable. Both courses offer case stories, master clinician interviews, and demonstration of real-world strategies to explore applications of sound and movement as one means of building an effective integrative practice.
