With Sarah Bell, MA, MTA, RCT-C, Music Therapist, Atlantic Centre for Trauma

Have you ever thought of the power music has? Or the way music can evoke such emotion and strongly relate to certain points within your life? According to the Canadian Association of Music Therapists, music therapy is a discipline in which Certified Music Therapists (MTAs) use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health, and well-being. Music therapists use music safely and ethically to address human needs with cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physical, social, and spiritual domains. Join Sarah Bell, Music Therapist at the Atlantic Centre for Trauma, as she explains the ways in which music therapy can help treat PTSD and addiction.
