About the event

Music therapists work with those who have experienced profound and significant trauma in a number of clinical settings. In some cases, participants in therapy may uncover or reveal past traumatic experiences which may not have been presented as part of the work. Responding to trauma therapeutically involves careful, thoughtful thinking and presence in the room - but how to do this sort of work effectively?

In this two hour workshop - with a strong emphasis on a safe space - we will workshop:

  • How trauma manifests in our workplaces and those we work with
  • How to spot traumatic symptoms in those we work with
  • How best to respond to patients/clients who are experiencing trauma
  • How existing theories help us understand our new landscapes: we will cover Adverse Childhood Experiences, physiological and neurological responses to trauma, developmental trauma, and use psychoanalytic theory to provide a window into the mind

Each workshop attendee will come away with a suite of resources on working with those experiencing trauma and an attendance certificate.
