Join Sandi Curtis, professor emerita in the Department of Creative Arts Therapies, for the launch of her book, Music for Women (Survivors of Violence): A Feminist Music Therapy Interactive eBook.

Published by Barcelona Publishers, the book draws upon pop culture and music to explore the phenomenon of male violence against women that is so prevalent today. Examining this in conjunction with the latest research findings, it provides a feminist understanding not only of this violence, but also of the meaning of gender and its impact in women’s lives in terms of their health and well-being, self-esteem, empowerment and love.

The book is intended for music therapists, other health care professionals and the women survivors of violence with whom they work. It is also intended for women as a whole since these issues impact so many.
