Listen: Music, Trauma & Recovery podcast

Cat McGauran speaks with James Richmond, Michael Mosley and Samantha Dieckmann about how music helps people recover from trauma.

This podcast was inspired by Melbourne Recital Centre's Music on the Mind lecture series in partnership with the Music, Mind and Wellbeing initiative at the University of Melbourne. In April 2017, Music on the Mind: Music & Trauma explored how people cope post-trauma, how people can reconstruct their identity, manage relationships and their capacity to engage and the critical role music can play in such cases, by welcoming experts Felicity Baker, Samantha Dieckmann, James Richmond to share their thoughts on cultural trauma for displaced peoples, post-traumatic stress disorder for those who have experienced extreme conflict situations and neurological trauma for those who have experienced spinal or brain injury.
