Music and Art Therapy are clinically effective treatments for many different types
of disabilities and other challenges, even in those who are resistive to traditional
treatment approaches. Music and Art Therapy are used to improve and enhance
the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages by setting
specific goals accomplished through the creative process. Some areas that music
and art therapists assist individuals are in mental health, Autism spectrum
disorders/developmental delays, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, pain
management, crisis and trauma, and traumatic brain injury.
GROUP THERAPY FOR CHILDREN THROUGH ADULTS
Groups provide many opportunities to work on social skills and broader goals involving communication and listening to others. Sessions are designed to help a group with similar needs meet their goals. All groups can be music therapy, art therapy, or in some cases, a combination of the two. Group Therapy can focus on:
- Expression and Regulation of Feelings and Behavior
- Socialization Goals such as Engagement, Empathy and Eye Contact
- Fine and Gross Motor Skills
- Safe and Organized Sensory Stimulation
Individual Art & Music Therapy
Individual sessions enable the therapist to work on the specific needs of the client, encouraging self-expression and creative development. For new students, we offer a 6-week Trial to ensure that this program is a good fit!
Workshops & Trainings
Informational workshops focus on adapting art and music to special populations. Corporate team building through the creative process helps focus groups on a common goal that is fun and engaging. Let us design a presentation for your next group.
