Music therapy is an allied healthcare profession. Music therapists adhere to specific standards including a scope of practice, code of ethics and professional (music and clinical) competencies. Being that music is processed all over the brain, music therapists are catalysts of an interdisciplinary team’s collaboration. Music therapists work in partnerships with patients, families and other therapists to achieve a patient’s personal and healthcare goals. Our program not only allows for individual music therapy treatment sessions, but also sessions where multiple therapists are collaborating together at the same time to strengthen overall treatment progress and generalization.
Music Therapy Collaborations
These are just a few of the many examples of collaboration that having music therapy on a team can provide. Music therapy interventions unlock potential and create opportunities for enhancing and reinforcing a patient’s treatment goals.
Every therapeutic modality has their own expertise and when we come together we can form a supportive powerhouse interdisciplinary team that strengthens goal generalization and mastery as well as the potential to decrease treatment need and length for patients.
