Register for the Soaring to New Heights College Inclusion Conference. 

Join TTAP's Anita Swanson who will be hosting an in-person and virtual workshop titled Music to Mitigate Stress. College and the transition to college can be a stressful time. A cost-effective means to mitigate stress is music. Music is readily available, can be accessed fairly easily, and may be used to mitigate stress, anxiety, and depression. A board-certified music therapist will explain how music affects the brain and body in ways that can be used for self-care. Music stimulates the brain to release the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is attributed to feeling “good.” Music also stimulates the mind and physical body to create, learn, and move. Each of these activities can contribute to positive feelings of self. Some practices to assist one in daily living will be described, such as how to adjust one’s emotional state via a personalized playlist and examples of musical apps for self-care, relaxation, and creativity will be presented.
