Unni Johns will defend her thesis: “Musical dynamics in time-limited intersubjective child psychotherapy – an exploration based on microanalysis of therapeutic interplay”.
08.11.2018 kl. 09.00 - 12.15
In this project Unni Johns developed a method for analysing child psychotherapy and analysed in detail small episodes with six children suffering from anxiety and depression using musical concepts of e.g. rhythm and tempo. Unni Johns found some patterns which indicated how a ‘musical looking glass’ can clarify the role of nonverbal communication for the capability to share and express emotional experiences. Such knowledge is essential for how therapists can reach a better understanding of the role of nonverbal communication in child psychotherapy to help children who has emotional difficulties.
