Perinatal Music Therapy

 

Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.

In the same way that physical therapy utilizes stretches within a treatment plan to address individualized goals, music therapy uses musical elements to address individualized goals within a treatment plan.

 

Perinatal music therapy in particular uses musical elements to address goals in the five stages associated with pregnancy: fertility, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and bereavement. The music therapist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan, complete with goals that matter to you. Some possible goals include stress management, emotional processing of anxieties surrounding the pregnancy and fetal/infant bonding.

 

As your music therapist, I will perform four basic steps to help you accomplish your goals:

1. Assessment: Obtain quantitative and qualitative information relevant to client needs.

2. Treatment Planning: Develop music therapy strategies to address short and long-term goals and objectives.

3. Implementation: Provide evidence-based music therapy strategies and interventions to address identified goals and objectives.

4. Evaluation and Documentation: Collect, compile, and document data relevant to client responses and progress, utilizing the findings to make decisions about music therapy services.

Experiences may include:

Songwriting

Music & Movement

Therapeutic Singing

Musical Improvisation

Lyrical Analysis 

Purpose Statement
