Since the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine on 22 February 2022, thousands of children have arrived in Spain and have been welcomed as refugees, not always accompanied by family members. The consequences of war are far-reaching, extending beyond the armed conflict itself. This often means having to move to a host country where they must face a new culture, language, etc.

This work will provide a music therapy tool to promote the social integration of refugee children. We have identified a clear need among Ukrainian children seeking asylum in Spain. We aim to provide a secure space for these children, aged between 3 and 6, to express themselves and develop their potential. We will also work to sensitise them to their situation and use creative approaches to treat trauma and improve their quality of life. We will do this through music therapy, which we will use in the social sphere.

To achieve this objective, we have developed an intervention proposal adapted to mental, emotional and behavioural health problems associated with exposure to highly traumatic content at an early age. We have also conducted a review of the benefits provided by the use of music therapy with migrant populations.
