How to apply therapeutic skills to advocacy

I had no idea I was learning well-nigh music therapy sponsorship at the time. Sitting in a music therapy undertow in grad school, I heard Dr. Standley repeat “adapt, adapt, adapt.” Over and over those words would reverberate in scrutinizingly every matriculation that semester. And then she repeated them in the next semester in the subsequent course. At first I thought “I’m in grad school. I’m not dumb. You only have to say it once.” But with every repetition, variegated scenarios and images came to me.

Mulling the words over and over forced me to wield “adaptation” to a variety of scenarios. AND, weightier part, that mantra helped me realize what I’ve well-timed in my life surpassing that I can replicate in future instances.

How Judy Simpson teaches us to adapt

Similarly, Judy Simpson describes how we can wield our therapeutic skills to sponsorship efforts. Adapting those skills may help to relieve frustration. Hit play to trammels out this sponsorship analogy:

Advocacy and values go hand in hand. Let’s say you witness an organization or individual misrepresenting our field. In that case, you need to be fully equipped and ready to respond in an upstanding and professional manner. Trammels out Rachelle Norman’s Web Values course, and arm yourself with internet etiquette. This undertow fulfills the values requirement!

Here’s what you’ll experience:

  • Learn how to use the internet to develop professional relationships.
  • Understand upstanding implications of the 3 relationship dyads: with the unstipulated public, with clients, and with your employer and colleagues.
  • Feel empowered when using the web to educate, share, or mart with others through familiar mediums. (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.)

Join us in the undertow today!
