How much do you know about music therapy? Many of us are able to find comfort and enjoyment in listening to, playing, or creating music, yet we don’t often speak about music as a form of professional therapy. In this episode, Trauma Report writer Promise Busulwa interviews Composer and Social Worker Alexandra Pajak about her experience as a music therapist working with women in the American prison system. She also talks about how these experiences influenced her latest album “Mind Electric”, which is made up of classical pieces composed to represent different types of mental illnesses.
