This article describes Project Bethlehem, a music therapy initiative which is taking place in the West Bank. It’s aim is to train teachers and health care workers in the therapeutic use of music with children.
The background to the Project is described, and the music therapy work is then detailed with references to the theoretical thinking behind it. An Appendix containing the booklet prepared as a teaching resource for staff involved in the Project is attached to show how the work was developed.
