ED Talk April 13: Addressing the Faculty and Staff’s Stress and Burnout in Music Therapy

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Under the COVID-19 pandemic situation, many faculty and staff are experiencing a high level of stress and burnout. Finding ways to address this issue is crucial for their overall well-being, and it will positively affect the work and learning environment for all. In this in-person ED Talk, three music therapy faculty will facilitate a mini music therapy session, demonstrating how music can be used to address stress and burnout. An information sheet that contains various ways of using music will be offered as well.

CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm in Hagfors 151. This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.
