3017: Gaga or Gershwin? What Every Psychiatric Nurse Needs to Know about Influence of Music on Emotion, Cognition, and Behavior
The psychotherapeutic properties of music are well-known, but is all music the same? For example, should we restrict certain styles of pop music for young people who exhibit self-destructive behaviors, or promote the use of "new age" music for depressed adults? In this multimedia presentation, the neuroprocessing of musical forms will be explained with clinical recommendations for the psychiatric nurse.
