November 11, 2011 - Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care

The holidays are coming which means we have lots to do! But in the midst of all that we need to take care of ourselves so that we can enjoy the holidays and have the energy and capacity to take care of others. This week, music therapist Christine Weinberg will tell us how to include self care in our list of things to do!

Christine C. Wineberg, MA, MT-BC, LPC currently works for Hampton Hospital in Westampton, NJ and sees private clients in Plymouth Meeting and Exton, PA. She has music therapy degrees from Mansfield University (1994) and Drexel University (2007)  and now provides supervision to interns and practicum students as an adjunct faculty supervisor. She has proudly been a board certified music therapist since 1995 and was credentialed as a licensed professional counselor in 2010. She worked at the Kardon Institute for Arts Therapy from 1996 through 2011 where she developed a number of programs including a choral group for adults and teens with intellectual disabilities, a music and movement therapy program for children with autism and their families and a continuing education series for creative arts therapists which included a monthly Self-Care series. She was appointed to the Continuing Education Committee of the Certification Board for Music Therapists in 2011 and continues to advocate for quality continuing education for music therapy professionals. She has volunteered in both Honduras, Central America and Ghana, West Africa to teach about the use of music with children with special needs. She has written and presented on a number of topics including autism, trauma and compassion fatigue and continues to research these areas of interest.

November 4, 2011 - Developing Melodies

My guest this week is Meryl Brown, who is a Board Certified Music Therapist, Developmental Specialist, owner and Blogger with Developing Melodies.  She received her Masters Degree in Music Therapy from Illinois State University and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from the Crane School of Music at The State University of New York College at Potsdam.  Meryl has been providing music therapy for individuals since 2006 and has worked with a variety of populations.  In 2008, Meryl received her credential as a Developmental Specialist which now allows her to receive reimbursement through the State of Illinois for services provided. 
            Her company was originally founded as Brown Music Therapy in 2007, however,  following maternity leave (allowing plenty of time to think), the business underwent a name change in 2011 to Developing Melodies.  This allowed her to expand and market her services more effectively.  In addition to the name change, she developed a comprehensive website including information about her, the services and a blog where she features songs, activities, ideas and information for a variety of readers.

Listen LIVE at noon eastern/11 central/10 mountain/9 pacific or you can find the archived show here or on iTunes.
