Jeg er utdannet musikkterapeut fra Norges musikkhøgskole, og er nå stipendiat på forskningsprosjektet Longitudinal study of music Therapy's Effectivenessfor Premature infants and their caregivers (LongSTEP) ved NORCE, Griegakademiets senter for musikkterapiforskning, Bergen. Jeg er særlig interessert i hva sang og musikk kan tilby sårbare sped- og småbarnsfamilier. Jeg er sertifisert i den kliniske musikkterapimodellen “First Sounds: Rhythm, Breath, Lullaby”, og sertifisert Newborn Behavioral Observation (NBO)-observatør. Jeg har klinisk erfaring fra barne- og ungdomsklikken ved Akershus universitetssykehus. Her startet jeg i 2017 "Prosjekt Samspill" ved avdeling for nyfødte, som den første systematiske innsatsen for implementering av musikkterapi på norske nyfødtintensivavdelinger.

The LongSTEP approach: Theoretical framework and intervention protocol for using parent-driven infant-directed singing as resource-oriented music therapy

Despite medical advances, preterm birth and neonatal intensive care (NICU) hospitalization are demanding and pose risks for infants and parents. Various music therapy (MT) models have suggested parental singing to promote healthy bonding and development in premature infants, but evidence on long-term effects is lacking. In this article we present the theoretical framework and intervention protocol of a resource-oriented MT approach for premature infants and their caregivers used in the international LongSTEP trial.

Longitudinal study of music therapy's effectiveness for premature infants and their caregivers (LongSTEP): Protocol for an international randomised trial

Preterm birth has major medical, psychological and socioeconomic consequences worldwide. Music therapy (MT) has positive effects on physiological measures of preterm infants and maternal anxiety, but rigorous studies including long-term follow-up are missing. Drawing on caregivers’ inherent resources, this study emphasises caregiver involvement in MT to promote attuned, developmentally appropriate musical interactions that may be of mutual benefit to infant and parent. This study will determine whether MT, as delivered by a qualified music therapist during neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) hospitalisation and/or in home/municipal settings following discharge, is superior to standard care in improving bonding between primary caregivers and preterm infants, parent well-being and infant development.
