Congratulations to our latest winner of The Good News Award: Chelsea Laratro
Chelsea is a Music Therapist who works with people with brain injuries. Music therapy can be used to enhance social skills, emotional skills, motor skills and communication skills. This is done by employing different techniques and interventions such as song writing, instrument playing, rhythmic activities and drawing to music. Chelsea spoke of seeing participants open up and talk, express themselves, participate and join into social situations. It has changed the lives of many of them in positive ways. As a person very keen on music and with a Psychology and Science background, to find a job where she can help others in such a positive way and utilize her music skills gives her great joy and a sense of accomplishment. An inspiration to others through her ability to touch and inspire.
