On today’s episode, the hosts of the Hospice Chaplaincy Show Joe Newton and Saul Ebema are joined by Jen Conley. Jen has been a music therapist and music instructor for over 30 years. She is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and singer-songwriter who readily moves between harp, piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele. She has three professionally recorded CDs, two of original music and one of solo harp music.
As a music therapist Jen utilizes music in clinical settings for healing, building connections, and as a tool to walk with others through struggles and change. She brings healing music to patients and clients in geriatrics, hospice, mental health, and educational settings. Within the medical setting Jen incorporates music therapy into the plan of care to address issues of pain reduction, depression, anxiety, loss of control, quality of life, spiritual support and a host of other needs. She utilizes songwriting and improvisation heavily in her practice with both patients and families. You can find more about Jen Conley here; https://jenconleymusic.com/
