In order to yield the psychologically transformative outcome she desired, Helen Bonny designed GIM as a reconstructive method. We will use a systematic decision making process, applying the principles of Summer’s Continuum Model of GIM in order to “slow down” the Bonny Method with a focus on its constituent levels: supportive, re-educative, and reconstructive. This is not a training in Music & Imagery (a separate method with a follow up practicum). Rather, this intensive 2-day seminar will teach GIM Fellows how to stay rooted in Helen Bonny’s music-centered, transformative approach to GIM while adapting sessions in order to meet the immediate needs of clients.
Lisa Summer developed the Continuum Model of GIM in the 1980’s as Coordinator of Helen Bonny’s GIM Programme at the Bonny Foundation. Currently she teaches the Continuum Model of GIM at the Institute for Music & Consciousness, and she serves as Director of the
music therapy program at Anna Maria College in the U.S.
