Deborah Spiegel

Hi, my name is Deborah Spiegel MT-BC.   I am a Board- Certified Music Therapist who has been in the field for over 30 years providing music therapy for people of all ages. I served as a member of a multi-disciplinary treatment team in a Dialectical Behavior Therapy based treatment facility for adolescents as a music therapist and a DBT Skills group leader for over 11 years. I use music and music activities to teach and reinforce skills.

I  published the book Music Activities & More for Teaching DBT Skills and Enhancing Any Therapy: Even for the Non-Musician (Authorhouse 2010) and recorded a companion CD with original songs that offer support and understanding for difficult problems and teach skillful ways to handle them, reinforcing DBT skills.

An approved continuing education provider through the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT), I travel around the country  teaching continuing education classes, in-services, and workshops for professionals, and offer a large selection of online classes as well.. www.dbtmusic.com

My goal here is to post interventions that will inspire new ideas for you, new and fun ways to use music to teach and reinforce skills.  Would love to have you share as well.
