Connecting with a Troubled Teen Through Trust and Music

This episode features the audio from one of the ACO webinar presentations. Susan Marcel D.O. tells Chris Burritt D.O. about her patient Myriam who had a psychotic break and required hospitalization and medicine but most importantly needed a trusting doctor-patient relationship. Listen in to hear how Dr. Marcel patiently worked with Miriam and how their shared love for music allowed them to make a special connection. With Dr. Marcel’s help, Myriam was able to heal as she addressed her mistrust and learned to tolerate and express her intense longing and other emotions.
