SECTION: Music for Working with Trauma Survivors COUNTRY: Germany PROJECT: USING MUSIC THERAPY TO REDUCE POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER SYMPTOMS AMONG CHILDREN, ADOLESCENTS AND ADULTS IN THE TREATMENT OF TORTURE VICTIMS DESCRIPTION: The Berlin Center for the Treatment of Torture Victims (bzfo), founded in 1992, is a nonprofit association committed to the rehabilitation of torture victims. The bzfo treats children, adolescents, adults and their families from more than 50 countries, as well as victims of the former East German secret service. The multidisciplinary team at the bzfo consists of medical doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists, creative therapists and social workers. Their work is assisted by specially trained interpreters. The music therapy service was initially set up in 2001 by the Nordoff-Robbins Foundation, Germany, and the Institute for Music Therapy at the University Witten-Herdecke. Individual and group music therapy sessions include activities such as improvisational and active music making, as well as receptive music listening, musical storytelling, song writing, musical movement and dancing, and musical drawing. Music therapy techniques address symptoms of anxiety and depression, social isolation, the ability to access and to regulate emotions, self-awareness, integration of traumatic experiences and strenghtening of individual resources, strategies and competences. At the bzfo, using music therapy in the treatment of torture survivors and people who suffer from war experiences has proven to be an efficient and supportive method in reducing stress reactions and symptoms resulting from trauma. Victims are helped to regain their dignity and lead a life largely free of the physical and psychological after-affects of the torture experience. CURRENT STATUS: The music therapy program is currently offered to day clinic patients as well as patients from the child and youth department. The foundation “Musik hilft” (Music Helps) promotes the work with children and adolescents through its sponsorship.
