The Conference is about

Gender, Health & Creative Arts Therapies. Held at Concordia University May 5-6, 2012, the conference is the first of its kind to explore issues of gender in health, in such creative arts therapies disciplines as music therapy, art therapy, dance/movement therapy and drama therapy. Participants will explore such important themes in practice, theory, research and pedagogy as: gender, feminism/womanism, multicultural and liberation psychologies, social justice, and violence against women.

...Concordia University's Sandra Curtis, a professor in the Department of Creative Arts Therapies,... uses music as the tool with which to enter into a deep psychological dialogue with individuals ranging from abused children to palliative care patients; female survivors of domestic violence to individuals struggling with workplace woes.
