About the thesis:
Kristin Maya Story: Guided Imagery and Music with Military Women and Trauma: A Continuum Approach to Music and Healing
The number of women veterans are increasing in the United States and they have a unique set of challenges upon returning to civilian life, including a high rate of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and exposure to sexual harassment and sexual assault. This research aimed to explore the use of Music Imagery and Guided Imagery and Music sessions as a treatment option for women veterans with PTSD, and to increase awareness of military sexual trauma. Included in the research are a feasibility study and an Arts Based Research film project.
