Dr. Jacqueline Verdeau-Pailles – A tribute to an exceptional woman
She left us on May 20, 2010, a few days after a massive stroke. She immediately understood that the severity of her condition was irreversible. Two days prior she had given, as usual, a master lecture on the two subjects that were her passion in life: music and psychiatry. A few months earlier, she demonstrated her dedication and sense of humor at a lecture entitled: "Giacomo Puccini: Madame Butterfly, it's me" when as a presenter she did not hesitate to put on Japanese kimono!
A month before her passing, she asked Alain and Chantal to give her their feedback on her latest book "The Catharsis in the Opera". Her unpretentious and straightforward manner was demonstrated when she announced to them that "I do not want compliments but I do wish for your honest opinion."
Dr Verdeau-Pailles became a pioneer in her field by exploring the clinical and therapeutic dimensions of music therapy. She traveled the world for many years presenting lectures, attending seminars and exploring new cultures. Her generous and enthusiastic personality was admired by both colleagues and patients alike. Her sudden absence is felt by all who knew her.
Dr. Verdeau-Pailles was 86 years old.
A program which weaves art & music into a unique and unprecedented therapeutic intervention.
A very structured methodology for accurately assessing the nature of a problem and for monitoring treatment progress.
A groundbreaking artistic mediation which addresses deep emotional core issues unobtrusively
and can overcome clients resistance to change.
