The Swinburne Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults presents The Role of Music Therapy: the first in a series of webinars featuring mental health and ageing expert guest presenters.

This Zoom webinar will introduce music therapy, including the changes music can make on the brain and body, the interventions that can be used, and how it can be used in palliative care, progressive neurological disease, and aged care.
