In this live class, you will learn basic principles to follow when planning and implementing treatment for individuals who are working through traumatic experiences. Tania will guide you through ethical means of assessing and treating trauma by using 4 case examples in the following settings: Medical, Inpatient Mental Health, Grief & Bereavement, and Wildcard setting to be determined day of the class.

Treatment conceptualization includes consideration of client’s culture and developmental needs. You will have the benefit of hearing from a music therapist with over 20 years of experience working exclusively in the field of child advocacy and trauma in a facility that requires constant learning and continuing education to stay on the cutting edge of research and development for treatment and advocacy.

Trauma is something that touches everyone at some point or another and dealing with traumatic memories is something that music therapists can truly help clients to navigate with our unique understanding of music, the brain, and memory. Trauma informed care is important for all providers to gain mastery in the delivery of care for our clients and patients regardless of setting because the potential for trauma related needs exists in all populations. With our ethics code as a guide, you will be equipped to practice music therapy through a Trauma Informed lens. Cultural considerations are central to conceptualizing treatment of this population. In addition, trauma as a result of experiences within different cultural groups is relevant to this workshop.
