Group Music Therapy

Personal development and social interaction are among the goals of group music therapy. Clients participate in improvised or composed musical activities selected to address specific clinical goals. Therapists design each musical experience to stimulate satisfying involvement and each individual is encouraged to participate to his or her fullest extent. Close teamwork between two therapists stimulates and supports the clients' involvement in order to maximize the developmental benefits for each one. Music making helps each participant to develop a sense of belonging and support with each other.
