TRAUMA: CURRENT THINKING AND
PRACTICE IN MUSIC THERAPY
Keynote speaker: Dr Julie Sutton
‘Psychological trauma is an affliction of the powerless….. traumatic events overwhelm the ordinary systems of care that give people a sense of control, connection and meaning.’(Herman, 1992)
Increasingly, trauma is being recognised as the source of a wide range of pathologies and manifestations of psychological distress. At this conference music therapists from the UK, Israel, Slovenia and Germany will present work with people who have been traumatised as a result of experiences including war and conflict, abuse, disability, maternal separation, depression and brain injury.
