In this episode, Molly talks with us about how music therapy can support survivors of trauma. She shares about her person-centered and humanistic approach, as well as how her approach is informed by the neurological sciences. She shares specific interventions ideas and walks us through the “6 R’s of regulation” – a phenomenal support for any therapist looking to support regulation for any child in the therapy room. Take a listen and enjoy!
