SECTION: Music for Working with Trauma Survivors COUNTRY: China PROJECT: HELPING TRAUMA SURVIVORS OF THE SICHUAN EARTHQUAKE: THE HANWANG FLUTE EDUCATION PROJECT DESCRIPTION: On the first anniversary of the Sichuan earthquake in 2009, an elementary school in Hanwang requested support from The Horizon Education Center to help its children cope with the after-effects of this traumatic event. After considering different therapy approaches, this agency decided to develop a group flute playing project to promote coping skills and cooperative social behavior. An experienced flute educator headed this effort and within a short period of time students and their teachers learned how to play together in a musically harmonious and coordinated fashion. Reports from the project indicate that students who had previously experienced posttraumatic symptoms such as disorientation, hallucinations, extreme anxiety and hyper-vigilance were said to be more calm, self-assured, socially interactive and appropriately self-regulating in terms of their emotional and cognitive functioning. CURRENT STATUS: The Horizon Education Center has submitted a proposal to the Chinese government to fund similar projects in other schools affected by the aftermath of the earthquake. Approval is currently pending.

SECTION: Music for Working with Trauma Survivors COUNTRY: China PROJECT: MUSIC THERAPY AS CRISIS INTERVENTION WITH SURVIVORS OF THE SICHUAN EARTHQUAKE ON MAY 12, 2008 DESCRIPTION: In 2008, an 8.0 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Sichuan province of China. This was the most serious earthquake in more than one thousand years in China, resulting in 90,000 deaths and 370,000 injured. Within two weeks of the Sichuan earthquake disaster, 60 music therapy professors and students arrived in the regions of the disastrous earthquake. They worked in shelters and schools with large groups, small treatment groups and individuals sessions. Familiar songs, dances, music games and song discussion were some of the activities utilized. Through the program, survivors began to participate more actively, gently being drawn out from a state of grieving. The music and the activities generated a positive energy at the disaster site and lifted the spirits of both caregivers and survivors which aided in the recovery process. CURRENT STATUS: The earthquake relief project is ongoing. Activities include: Music therapy volunteers continue to provide services to earthquake victims Training for local music teachers in music therapy techniques Establishing an internet program for crisis intervention using the technique called Music Entrainment Desensitization and Reprocessing (Gao, 2005) to provide free long distance assistance Dissemination of information on the subject of disaster response through music in professional publication and conferences ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: http://www.musictherapy2003.com/text.php?id=220 http://www.wfmt.info/WFMT/GCI_Column_files/GCI%20Column%201_2009.pdf http://en.ccom.edu.cn/academics/iomt/introduction/200803240044.shtml http://www.china.org.cn/china/features/content_16654093_2.htm Publications: Tian Gao.
