Music: The Quickening Art, Part II

OT and music

For those of you who have been following this blog since the beginning (thanks, Mom!), you may recall that I posted a clip from the rough cut of the movie "Alive Inside" about a year ago. I was thrilled to see that the documentary is opening this weekend in New York.

I have been working at a state psychiatric hospital for the past year, and was constantly reminded about how important music is to quality of life. The trailer alone challenges us to think about what's working in healthcare and what isn't. I can't wait to see the whole movie!

If you get to see it before me, leave me a comment with your thoughts! 

The healthcare system imagines the human to be a very complicated machine. We have medicines that can adjust the dials…...But, we have not done anything to touch the heart and the soul of the patient.
