Neuropsychotherapy – A Music Therapy Approach to Trauma

Trauma or PTSD is one of the more common topics in the neuroscience and therapy literature. However, the articles are often technical and tend to limit access to therapists, including music therapists. In addition, music therapists have an increasing body of literature on music and the brain to reference for interventions. Gene Ann will present in depth discussions, rehearsals, and experiences of recent neuroscience research and relate the outcomes to trauma-informed music therapy. No matter what theoretical approach is used, neuroscience enhances music therapists’ perspectives and treatment interventions to trauma work.

Gene Ann Behrens’ research on music therapy and the neurobiology of trauma has led to national and international publications and presentations in several countries. In addition to her current trauma work, some of her international work includes conducting music therapy sessions for over two months in Bethlehem, OPT, with children traumatized by the ongoing conflict; and workshops with NGO staff in Somalia and teachers in Kenya on the neurobiology of trauma.

“Neuropsychotherapy – A Music Therapy Approach to Trauma” is approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for 14 Continuing Music Therapy Education credits. The MAR-AMTA, P#065, maintains responsibility for program quality and adherence to CBMT policies and criteria. The course provides 0 contact hours for LCAT.
