School of Music presents International Research Seminar - Composing the self: The therapeutic benefits of song-writing in adjusting to adversity Other events...
Dr Felicity Baker is well known for her extensive research in the field of music therapy. In this lecture Dr Baker explores how therapeutic songwriting assists clients to manage their reactions to adversity. By creating songs in a therapeutic relationship, clients begin to address psychosocial, emotional, cognitive, and communication needs. Examples from Dr Bakerís research will be used to illustrate the profound benefit songwriting has for people with significant acquired disabilities.

Dr Alan Harvey, Winthrop Professor of Anatomy and Human Biology at The University of Western Australia, and researcher in the area of the neuroscience of music, will give a response to Dr Bakerís lecture.

A short musical performance will follow the lecture.

This is a Mental Health Week event.
