AbstractThe purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of the experiences of music therapists working with survivors of sexual trauma, and the potential secondary traumatic stress (STS), vicarious trauma (VT), burnout, and/or vicarious resilience (VR) that may arise. Three board-certified music therapists (MT-BC) currently working with survivors of sexual trauma were interviewed to gain an understanding of clinicians’ experiences working with this population, and if/how explored phenomena are experienced within their work. Interviews were coded using In Vivo Coding and Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Implications of the results for clinical practice and future direction of music therapy research are discussed. Keywords: music therapy, sexual trauma, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma, burnout, vicarious resilience.
