Music Therapy and Mental Health

Music therapy is a successful and valid treatment for individuals who have psychosocial, affective, cognitive and communicative needs.  Music is a method of therapy that provokes responses due to the familiarity, predictability and feelings of security associated with it. 

Music therapy intervention provides opportunities to: 

Explore personal feelings and therapeutic issues such as self-esteem or personal insight

Have a sense of control over life through successful experiences

Express oneself verbally and non-verbally

Develop coping and relaxation skills

Improve problem solving skills

Interact appropriately with others

Develop independence and decision making skills

Resolve conflicts leading to stronger family and peer relationships.
