This is an incredible movie about music therapy and tying music to memory. We all know of the incredible impact music has on our residents! It’s also a great reflection on the person-centered philosophy and validation theory as the music therapist and father begins to understand and form a relationship with Gabriel only after they accept him for who he is and where he is at mentally.
Synopsis: Tale of a father who struggles to bond with his estranged son Gabriel, after Gabriel suffers from a brain tumor that prevents him from forming new memories. With Gabriel unable to shed the beliefs and interests that caused their physical and emotional distance, Henry must learn to embrace his son’s choices and try to connect with him through music.
The next training for 2011 will be October 12, 13, 14, 15, 26, 27, 28 November 9, 10, 11. Classes are from 8am – 5pm.
