“The Traumatized Brain” Handouts

by Kimberly on November 14, 2009 · 2 comments

If you’ve been following me on this blog or on Twitter and Facebook, you know that I am writing this from the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) national conference. We are in sunny San Diego–the weather is perfect, the palm trees are beautiful, and the tobacco warning signs read: “Warning: This area contains various chemicals including tobacco smoke, which is known to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive issues.”

Ahhh, California…

On Saturday, I gave a presentation titled “The Traumatized Brain: Understanding the Science Behind Trauma and Why Music Works.” If you attended the session, thank you for your interest and support!

If you are interested in downloading the handouts, click the link below and a PDF should start downloading:

Way. To. Go! What a beautifully organized handout (and, I imagine) presentation. You absolutely should put it together to publish. There are too few resources on this topic in our field. I did a poster presentation back in (ack!) 1999, I think it was, on People with Developmental Disabilities and Trauma. All of my resources were from outside of music therapy.

Thanks again for posting such helpful material! Rock on, sister!

Thank you for your encouragement, Roia! I’ve been thinking of putting this together and submitting it for publication. Maybe now’s the time?…~Kimberly
