Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
The Boulder Institute for Psychotherapy and Research (BIPR), a non-profit that combines cutting-edge brain research with clinical practice to assist those suffering from trauma and attachment disorders, released a song today on YouTube designed to help with the emotional recovery of a community traumatized by the recent Boulder floods.
The effort was inspired by BIPR volunteer Melody (last name omitted for anonymity), whose son struggled to sleep and insisted on wearing a life jacket following the devastation caused by flood waters in the Boulder area.
"Armed with the knowledge that music has long been used to help individuals with a wide range of neurological conditions, I found a song on YouTube about the Alberta floods earlier this year," said Melody. "My son listened to the song over and over, and eventually took off his life jacket."
Witnessing what the song had done for her son, and understanding the pain fellow Boulderites were experiencing, Melody contacted songwriter Blake Reid and asked him to modify his song for the Boulder community. He did just that.
In less than three days, Reid responded with a beautiful song that BIPR today released on YouTube with pictures of recovery efforts. Listen to it here: http://youtu.be/UNg6_1RfFV8.
This is one of many ways BIPR is helping its community heal. Other efforts include:
