Music Therapy Assessment Tool for Awareness in
Disorders of Consciousness (MATADOC) Training

September 21-23, 2018

This three day training will equip delegates to use the Music Therapy Assessment Tool for Awareness in Disorders of Consciousness (MATADOC) in clinical settings.

The MATADOC is a standardized diagnostic music-based measure validated for use with adults with Disorders of Consciousness (DOC). The MATADOC provides a rigorous assessment for use with people whose awareness is difficult to assess clinically due to complex clinical presentations compromising motor, cognitive and communication functioning. Although validated for adults with DOC, it can be used with other minimally responsive populations including children with DOC, those with profound developmental disabilities, end stage dementia or end stage terminal illness. This training will cover the background to adult and child DOC populations, and the latest research evidence underpinning the rationale for using music works in diagnosis, assessment and treatment with DOC populations. 
This course is suitable for professionals who are 

• Practicing as music therapists or students who have clinical/placement experience working with a population that presents with a disorder of consciousness.

• Working with populations with profound brain damage including end stage dementia, end stage neurological illness and developmental disabilities.

The training can be followed by an optional second level competency development which is offered through on line supervision.
Though most suited to professional music therapists, the training is also open to allied professionals who are experienced in working with DOC populations.
