Directed by Garry Beitel

Deborah Salmon has worked as a music therapist with the terminally ill since 1984. Featuring her work in the Palliative Care Unit of the Royal Victoria Hospital, On Wings of Song shows how a skilled music therapist may help a diverse group of patients find spiritual and emotional nourishment during their last days.

By calling upon the knowledge of a wide range of musical instruments and styles, a music therapist is able to forge a strong emotional connection with a patient. One tired, elderly patient is awakened from her lethargy and surprises us with the vigor of her song. A younger woman finds pleasure in improvising lyrics to a familiar tune. Adult children gather at their mother's bedside to sing favorite hymns. This poignant and inspiring film captures moments of humor, celebration and joy made possible through music.

  • "Music seems to speak to the person in the patient. It somehow creates a sacred space in which we can together explore what is meaningful." - Deborah Salmon

    With Judith Aron Rubin, PhD

    This program provides an introductory glimpse into the exciting and dynamic world of art therapy. With footage from art therapy sessions conducted all over the world and spanning several decades, you'll see the diversity of the field and the many benefits to incorporating an art therapy approach into your practice.

    Art for healing is as ancient as the drawings on the walls of caves. Famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Frida Kahlo used art to cope with their anguish. Now the practice of art as healing is a growing discipline that has been effective in helping those suffering schizophrenia, cancer, depression, trauma, grief, autism, physical or mental disability, AIDS and neurological disorders, among others. Further, art therapy can be used with children, families, the elderly, couples and groups.

    In this program, you will be introduced to two major branches of art therapy: the use of art as a healing method unto itself, and the use of art as a tool in the psychotherapy process. In either approach, art therapy provides a way for clients to tell without talking, and a new way for therapists to listen.

    From watching this program, you will:
  • Understand the many benefits of using an art therapy approach in your practice.
  • Learn how Art Therapy developed into a field, and who were its founders.
  • Be inspired to pursue further education and practice in art therapy.
