Review: Preliminary thoughts on ‘Experiencing Race as a Music Therapist’ (Hadley) | Therapeutic Diversity

I am hoping to do a full review of this book at some point, but here are my thoughts so far on the book Experiencing Race as a Music Therapist. The book features seventeen narratives on race and culture in Music Therapy, compiled by Susan Hadley.

At the very start of the book Hadley speaks about a previous epiphany of self awareness of her whiteness and notes that in recognising herself as a minority (as a white person in Philadelphia) she was not recognising her privilege and that her so called empathy for ethnic minorities was misguided.
