Therapeutic Songwriting CPD

01 February 2022 to 31 March 2022

The therapeutic songwriting module at UWE will be taught face-to-face again in early 2022. Bob Heath and Jane Lings (who you can hear talking about songwriting in their Music Therapy Conversations Podcast Episode) are back to impart their wisdom and experience on the incorporation of songwriting into therapeutic practice.

The module can be taken as classroom only, or as a full module, which includes a written assignment and viva presentation in April 2022. All in-person teaching sessions take place at weekends (February and March 2022). It is suitable for music therapists, either qualified or in training, and also welcomes professionals from other fields such as education, social care, counselling, psychotherapy and community music. Musicians from any tradition or genre are welcome, and there is no expectation of previous expertise in songwriting. The module is delivered in partnership with the UWE Centre for Music, and participants will have access to the excellent facilities at the centre on UWE Frenchay Campus, Bristol.
