Hello again!!My name is Cassadi Kulak and I am the current Music Therapy Intern at The Cultural Education Center for the Arts also known as CECA! The last time I wrote I discussed my first impressions of AAW and CECA as well as my observations, growth in leadership skills, and the COVID-19 closure and what this meant for my internship and my case study.
My internship has only just begun and I have already gained so much knowledge and grown as a rising music therapist. The clients and staff at CECA have made a huge impact on my life and I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such amazing people everyday! I cannot wait to see what else I will learn and how my time at Able ARTS Work will help to shape me for the future.
By the end of the study, PJ was able to identify 8 out of 10 letters and 10 numbers for his reading comprehension objective, and was able to spell two words independently. For his social behavior and attention span objectives, there was consistent growth in each. By week 12, he met both of these objectives. He went above his self-esteem objective by identifying two additional attributes about himself. Although he did not fully meet his articulation objective, he made statistically significant progress.
As a result of this case study, I learned so much about music therapy and my own clinical skills. An important part of my growth over these 13 weeks was taking the time to reflect on my facilitation skills while identifying strengths and weaknesses. From this and discussions with my supervisor, I significantly increased my mental flexibility, self-awareness, and ability to act outside of my comfort zone in sessions. Before my internship and my case study, I was more focused on facilitating sessions according to a set plan rather than adapting as needed in the moment. Working with PJ dramatically changed this, as my supervisor and I pushed myself to think creatively and remain flexible. This study also tested my organization skills and critical thinking, as I often had to find ways to address multiple objectives in one activity. This was primarily due to the time constraint of the study, but is also an important component of music therapy as a profession. On top of everything, I had never even worked 1:1 with a client before in my scholastic career, making this a challenge I am proud to say I overcame!
Able Arts Work is one such organization fighting hard for inclusionof people of all abilities through the arts. Seeing artists from our variousprograms in the front row listening to this amazing panel, performing on stage,and showing their artwork alongside artists from the LA area just made my heartexplode with pride. I am so proud to see my students grow and challenge thestatus quo. As I expect my own little artist in the coming months, I feelhopeful about the world she will be born into. I feel this way because of mystudents, seeing their determination to make changes in our society longoverdue, right the wrongs of the past, and not only shine a light on injusticebut be living examples of inclusion of all people. The future looks brightindeed! Hear Our Voices! ¡Escuchen Nuestras Voces! 2b1af7f3a8
