We’re so pleased to be part of a new guide to trauma recovery. This free guide is a collaborative research project coordinated by Ann Jordan (educator, social justice campaigner and researcher) which aims to address some of the failings of current treatments of psychological trauma.
This guide offers alternatives to the traditional methods of trauma recovery and has been created in collaboration with experts in the field. It provides an in-depth overview of the options available to those seeking support with trauma and mental health issues.
This is a useful resource for those working in related fields looking to deepen their understanding of trauma and the different recovery methods. It also contains self-help information for trauma sufferers themselves. Ranging from counselling to creative activities, there’s a wide range of options available.
Asylum-seekers and refugees often experience psychological trauma. This is due to the horrific experiences they have lived through, which can devastate survivor’s lives. This is intensified by threats such as homelessness, deportation or hate crime.
Music Action International provides an opportunity to develop healthy coping strategies, access vital support networks and for people to become the architects of their own recovery. Music has been shown to be an effective way to overcome trauma. Often, it is an important alternative to more traditional Western talking therapies.
You are making a huge contribution in helping to heal those who have suffered so much inhumane treatment, and in such a creative way’ – Ann Jordan, Researcher and Campaigner
