Participants need to pass the test in order to receive the certificate of completion (online lectures are included on the test). This course showcases the music and dance communities through a behavioral and social science perspective while highlighting specific opportunities and techniques for engagement, education, prevention, and treatment in response to various arts-specific health concerns. Collectively, participants will hear introductory and research-based lectures on associated risk factors, life-span issues, and the interactive, cultural, and contextual distinctions of health problems that are unique to performing artists. The online lectures introduce the epidemiology and etiology of health issues occurring in performing artists. Participants will understand the broad health concerns and risks that performing artists are exposed to from the fields of physical, psychological and auditory health. Attendees will understand how to apply some basic educational and clinical intervention strategies.
