Workshop Description:

Listen to the Music: Perspectives on Music and Stress during the COVID-19 Pandemic explores the interdisciplinary ways in which stress and music interact to impact physical and mental well-being. Quarantine, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, has caused many to experience sudden isolation and severe stress symptoms that can negatively impact physical and mental health (Hang, et al., 2020). A brief exploration of the use of music throughout history in medicine will be provided, before our experts explore methods for using music to reduce stress in mental and physical health practices during COVID-19.

After introducing the ways in which stress can impact physical health, music utilization in medicine to reduce these symptoms will be discussed. Particpants will learn about integrative treatment methods that incorporate music into clinical mental health practice, and receive guidance on the use of music in self-care. Our diverse panel of experts will also share their personal experiences using music during COVID-19, including how they have used stress to inform their consumption and making of music.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this introductory-level workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Describe physical symptoms associated with stress.

2. List two ways in which music can cause physical changes in the body.

3. Discuss the use of music in modern clinical mental health treatments.

4. Utilize music in self-care practice.
