Contact emotions,

Contact emotions, feelings and allow need for catharsis (Phase I) Become aware of their strengths and personal resources (Phase II) Work as a group towards finding solutions, considering the value of community resilience (Phase III) Music therapy group interventions were carried out from March to December 2010, approximately every 3 to 4 weeks. Over 400 people were served and over 30 group sessions delivered. The project is waiting for funds to be able to continue. At this time music therapists continue to be in contact with the health workers as well as with the senior´s home by phone and email correspondence to continue evaluating the current needs. RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: It was planned that each group would have three sessions although this varied based on the needs and priorities of the population which changed rapidly, especially for front line workers. Most of the other groups, seniors, youth and women, received the full three sessions. A verbal evaluation was done at the end of each session asking the clients “How was the experience for you?” and “What do you take with you?” All clients were also given a written questionnaire at the end of the last session, to be completed anonymously, without the music therapists present. The information has been documented for each group and the program as a whole. General comments have also been included. Preliminary results were presented at the World Congress for music Therapy in Seoul, Korea July 2011.

SECTION: Music for Working with Trauma Survivors COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: MUSIC THERAPY AS CRISIS PROJECT INTERVENTION WITH SURVIVORS OF THE ATTACKS ON THE WORLD TRADE CENTERS IN NEW YORK CITY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 DESCRIPTION: In response to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001, the “New York City Music Therapy Relief Project” was created in which 33 professional music therapists provided direct client services in 20 locations throughout NYC, together facilitating over 7,000 music therapy interventions for children, adults, and families of the victims. The goal was to help those struggling with the aftermath of the attacks to reduce stress and cope with trauma through the focused use of music and music therapy interventions. This project was developed by the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) with underwriting support from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). Additionally, a nine-week program was created to help caregivers, relief workers, medical professionals, therapists and police officers to process the aftermath of the crisis and nurture themselves. Music interventions included musical improvisation, song-writing and singing, combined with sharing stories, discussions, listening, relaxation, drawing, imagery, and bodywork. Participating music therapists published a book describing the process, theory and methods of the program, Caring for the caregiver: The use of music and music therapy in grief and trauma. CURRENT STATUS: Additional support from the Toys R Us Foundation allowed the program to continue for another year, and the work of the relief project continues in the many music therapy practices by licensed clinicians in New York today. In response to the need in the United States, the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) has further developed a Disaster Response Program. AMTA Disaster Response Programs have also included: Gulf Coast hurricanes (2005, 2008), Virginia Technology University shooting (2007), and Southern California wildfires (2007, 2008).
