Example text

We had tailor-made a workshop programme for each group based both on their stated musical preferences, and the new forms of music they had discovered during their earlier work. For Donald, this phase of work lasted for 14 weeks. In addition to the workshops, the group went out on concert trips. In order for it to be successful, this stage of workshops and trips had to be organised some time in advance. The music therapist therefore had been establishing the participants’ preferences and potential from the beginning.

She feels worried because a gang of older children (also orphaned) have been ‘hanging around’ her home, and, it turns out, no husband/father/adult takes care of her children while she is working. Lindiwe looks distressed and exhausted and we (the therapy team) are on high alert. The entire group listens attentively. The women next to her put an arm around her shoulders, and other members of the group ask her questions, are receptive, supportive and highly empathic. Again, as therapists, we might have had a sense of not being needed.

The shifts between various roles feel natural here. Each role has a distinctive task, with distinctive skills, and just because we flow easily from one role to another does not mean that our roles merge into one ‘way of being’ together. Our learning, as therapists, is to remain alert to the timing and need for activating any one role. Rather confusingly, roles do not always depend on the physical space or time, so that being together as therapist–client, co-professionals and fellow human beings shifts constantly, both within and outside our session times.
