This project highlights the need for a new treatment modality targeted towards incarcerated women with histories of trauma. A comprehensive literature details three main themes: the etiology and symptomatology of trauma in incarcerated women, the utility of group process, and the benefits of implementing a creative intervention such as songwriting therapy with this population. These various aspects of research are then integrated to outline a trauma-focused songwriting therapy program that accounts for the particular needs of this population.
