Includes bibliographical references and index.Trauma-Informed Music Therapy is a timely volume that combines theoretical perspectives on trauma-informed practice with real-life applications in music therapy practice. Board-certified music therapists are in a unique position to provide comfort, create a sense of safety, and empower people to find their voice during and after traumatic experiences. In this book, the theory behind trauma-informed practice (TIP) is explored and expanded through stories of clinical implementation, social justice practices, and music therapy theories. Spanning topics such as grief and loss, adverse childhood experiences and their intergenerational effects, domestic abuse, urban trauma, polyvagal theory, and psychological first aid, this book addresses music therapy as the emerging therapeutic treatment modality for adults, children, and teenagers alike. This book will be of interest to practicing music therapists and music therapy students who are learning how to bring music therapy to victims and survivors of trauma.
