This week I’m bringing self-care to the American Music Therapy Association’s National Conference in Sandusky, Ohio.

A couple of conference announcements:

First, is that Ellen Whealton and I will be hosting The Self-Care and Wellness for Music Therapists booth in the exhibit hall, which will be a space dedicated to music therapists’ self-care. We will be there for your self-care needs and education, and we will be giving away a Map to Self-Care to everyone who stops by.

I’ll be providing a 3-minute grounding meditation experience for anyone who needs to come take a break (or get grounded before your presentation), and I’ll have a preview available of my eBook, Resilience Over Burnout: A Self-Care Guide for Music Therapists. Ellen will have Young Living essential oils samples and mini classes available to learn about essential oils for self-care. We will also have info on CMTE opportunities for self-care, and you are free to come by anytime and chat with us about burnout support and prevention.

Second, is that I’ll be presenting on Friday 11/11 at 5:00pm on the Self-Care Trending Topics Panel along with Annette Whitehead-Pleaux and Deborah Benkovitz. We will be hosting discussion on self-care and I’ll be covering grounding techniques to use for self-care to feel more steady and centered so you are less likely to drain yourself at work.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
