Throughout the ages, songs have told people’s stories about love, memories, relationships, loss, hardships, pain and suffering. Songwriters are transformed as they explore, reflect, resolve, and reconstruct meaning in life through the creation of lyrics and music. Their songs are syntheses of their personal processes or representations of their transformed selves. In this presentation, Felicity will share findings from her research regarding the role of songwriting as a transformative tool for people suffering from a range of significant health conditions.
