The Benefits of Music Therapy

COVID-19 has upended our way of life in so many ways, with economical distress, panic and anxiety, and a rise in domestic violence to name a few. 

Today we have Dr. Sandi Curtis on the show, an internationally trained music therapist and author. Her specialty is "feminist music therapy" working with women & children who are survivors of violence, as well as those with special needs and palliative care. 

Dr. Curtis tells us today about the rates of domestic violence in the US, connecting music to movement, and how music can help anyone overcome trauma and speak their truths.
