When: TBA Where: BMTN Zoom Live! Course Description: Culturally sustaining practices call for a contextual understanding of the multiple ways in which racial systems of oppression impact clients' lived experiences and influence therapeutic processes. While music therapy education increasingly centers on developing cultural awareness, knowledge, and skill as an ethical imperative, this training minimally explores intersectionality within Black practitioners' experiences and the embodied decision-making that supports culturally sustaining practice. Somatic abolition is a living embodied anti-racist practice that critically examines relational and structural violence caused by racial oppression and deepens the development of somatic attending skills to support Black music therapists. This course aims to deepen practitioners' ability to explore embodied experiences rooted in somatic abolition practice. Pre-req: MT-BC
