Event description

Description







Maya Story and Suzannah Scott-Moncrieff will explore music’s capacity to speak the language of trauma and resilience, present research using music and imagery in the treatment of PTSD, and introduce a method of self-care that supports connection to a clinician’s inner resources and strengths.


This workshop will include didactic and experiential components, beginning with Suzannah’s introduction to trauma-informed Guided Imagery and Music, related to Judith Herman’s triphasic model of trauma recovery. Maya will then provide an overview of her PhD research which examines the use of Music and Imagery with women veterans in the USA, who have experienced military sexual trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Finally, the participants will explore music and imagery as a method of personal self-care and self-supervision.


Suzannah Scott-Moncrieff, MA, MT-BC, LCAT has been working in the field of music therapy in New York City for the past 15 years, and has now returned to live and work in Scotland. For the past ten years, Suzannah has had a private psychotherapy practice working with adults with histories of trauma and related mental health diagnoses. Suzannah was adjunct faculty at New York University’s music therapy program, and is currently an assistant trainer with the Institute for Music and Consciousness in China and the USA, and the Integrative GIM Training Program in London. As a Fellow of the Association for Music and Imagery, Suzannah was one of the first people to be trained in The Continuum Model of GIM, developed by Dr. Lisa Summer.


Maya Story, PhD is a therapist, musician, and educator. She uses music and imagery to help connect individuals to their implicit knowledge and truths, fostering deep listening and attention to their inner landscapes. A Fellow of the Association of Music and Imagery, she also utilizes the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music for individual depth therapy. Her PhD research examined music and imagery as a method of healing for women veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder from military sexual trauma. She facilitates workshops on the power of deep listening and the use of music and imagery for selfcare and has lectured in Europe, Asia and North America.
