This course presents three music therapy styles across the lifespan with a focus on theory, analysis, and practice. Included are Developmental Music Therapy, Nordoff/Robbins improvisational style, and the use of music therapy in in-patient psychotherapy. Students will expand their knowledge of the music therapy literature, critically examine different techniques presented, continue to identify personal and clinical implications of the techniques presented, expand skills in instrumental improvisation, expand music therapy skills in individual and group settings with children in educational settings and adult inpatient psychiatry, and understand and explore their own mental health issues in relationship to practice.
