Individual Music Therapy

In individual music therapy vocal and instrumental improvisation stimulates communication between client and therapist. As therapy proceeds, the client increasingly develops his or her capacity for spontaneous expression and interaction through music. With children and adolescents, a team of two therapists work together with one providing the music while the other facilitates the child's participation. One therapist generally conducts therapy with adults. Depending on the needs of the client, issues that can be addressed and worked on include emotion regulation, discovering potential strengths, and developing resilience.
