One of the Tune In To Teens course features I hear the most positive feedback about is the Challenging Scenarios & Strategies for Success section, in Chapter 3.

Working with teens is one of the most enjoyable things I’ve had the opportunity to do in my music therapy career, but it does come with some unique challenges.

How do you stay on top of learning all those new pop songs? And how do you handle songs with inappropriate language and content?

How do you reproduce songs from the radio that are difficult to accurately and authentically recreate?

How should you structure your sessions and how often should you repeat activities?

How do you manage a large group of teen clients?

How do you handle challenging behaviors like cursing, fighting, and agitation from over stimulation?

And, most importantly – What do you say or do when you hear the dreaded “This is dumb” or “This is boring”?

(Hint: You’re not going to curl up in a ball and hide.)

In the Tune In To Teens E-Course, I answer each and every one of these questions in detail.

You’ll learn exactly how to handle challenging situations – specific things to say and concrete steps to take to ensure you start hearing “This is cool!” and “Can we do this again at the next session?”

In addition to all this, the E-Course is JAM PACKED with creative intervention ideas in a variety of domains, new songs, and session planning inspiration for working with teens with autism and other special needs. Course participants have access to sheet music, looped hip hop beats, original song MP3s, session videos, and creativity worksheets that can be downloaded and saved.

Participants can receive between 5 – 15 pre-approved CMTE credits (depending on which package you choose) and have access to a VIP forum with personalized instructor support (win-win right?!)

John Kneip, MT-BC had this to say about Tune In To Teens: I think this was the most organized and clearly presented online music therapy course I have ever taken. Thank you for so much valuable and useful information. I really appreciated the amount of specific, practical, and useful ideas.”
