What is a 典型 music therapy 会议 like?

通过 金伯利2011年2月9日 · 12 评论


那里 i没有这样的东西“typical” music therapy 会议. A music therapy 会议 will look vastly different depending 上 who we 工作 with and where we 工作 with them.

That said, there are certain components that are 固有 to a music therapy 会议. Although these components will loo different depending 上 client age, clinical population, and setting, as a 一般规则, 您 can spot them in almost any music therapy 会议.


那里 is often some formal way a music therapist will open the 会议. Examples include:

  • 唱歌“hello song” when 工作ing with children
  • Starting a group 会议 通过 going around the circle and inviting everyone to answer a question about how they are 在做 in that moment (sometimes called a round or a check-in).
  • Beginning with a review of what occurred in the previous 会议

开幕式帮助我们的客户过渡到音乐疗法“space” and helps set the tone for the 会议. If appropriate, the therapist may use the same opening week after week (e.g. sing the same “Hello Song”)。这样可以使客户熟悉,并可以在一段时间后“prime”他们知道他们唱歌时会开始音乐疗法。


The bulk of the 会议 will consist of the music therapy 介入s. These are experiences the music therapist facilitates that are meant to target the client’s non-musical goals and objectives. Generally speaking, there are four types of music-based 介入s:

  1. 表演/演奏。这可能包括唱歌或弹奏乐器。
  2. 构成。这包括任何组或个人的歌曲创作过程,并且可以根据需要简单或复杂。
  3. 即兴创作。即兴创作是指当场或即刻创作音乐。
  4. 接收/收听. This can include a music and relaxation-type of experience, a lyric analysis 介入, and a “moving to music”经验类型(如步态训练)。

A “typical” music therapy 会议 may incorporate multiple 介入s or just 上 e long, in-depth 上 e. The key is that each 介入 is designed to target a specific therapeutic goal and objective.


结束就像开幕…a major transition point the gets the client ready to leave the music therapy 空间 and “re-join”外界。与开头类似,这可以包括“good-bye song”, a closing check-in or round, or a summary of what happened during the 会议.


Although the closing and opening are the main transition points, other transitions that happen during a 会议 are key to it’s success. A transition 一般ly occurs in between 介入s (or components within an 介入) and are meant to help the client move seamlessly through various points in the 会议.

过渡可以简单到一两个句子。它可以包括“cleaning up” from the previous 介入 (e.g. putting away instruments). Sometimes we transition through a song.




  • 灯光
  • 外部噪音/声音
  • 椅子的设置(I’m偏圆)
  • 器械/道具存储(治疗师需要可以使用,而不会分散服务对象的注意力)
  • 在房间里闻到
  • 视觉干扰(例如墙上的图片和海报)
  • 触觉分散注意力(仪器触手可及吗?)

I’谨感谢Maven读者Elise Ivey所提供的启发。 Elise对我如何计划“typical” music therapy 会议. I hope this post helped give 您 some insight, Elise!

这无疑解决了公众在询问音乐疗法的性质时提出的一个非常普遍的问题。–特别是周围“actually happens” in 会议.

只是要添加的东西,需要其他思考…Although stated above that the ingredients of a music therapy 会议 include the specified elements as a “general rule,” it may 上 ly be “general” when considered from the perspective of a certain social context. In fact, the structure of music therapy 会议 can vary radically from the more 常规 type described here.

Consider for example, certain expressions of 社区音乐疗法 (CoMT). The linearity of opening-intervention-closing is not always apparent in these instances, and it is not really the music therapist who directs the structure of the “session”(如果该术语甚至适用),就其本身而言。在这些情况下,更多的是治疗师的事’在一个现有的社会环境中具有一个或多个健康焦点的熟练的音乐演奏。

I am interested to hear from those whose experiences of music therapy deviate from a 常规 “treatment”模型场景(例如,我已经以CoMT的某些表现形式进行了描述)。

当我在佐治亚州立大学和州立大学读本科时,我非常参与与鲍德温服务中心相关的社区音乐治疗计划,该计划为发育障碍的成年人提供日间护理。即使在与我合作并最终导演的合唱团中,你好和再见的歌曲也是不可或缺的部分。他们提供了机会来分享本周的情况,确保每个人都适应了方向,然后处理了对本周的感受。‘work’ that was accomplished during the rehearsal. The 介入s, to me, seemed mainly to consist of us (the students) trouble shooting various ways to teach the clients the music, finding what 工作ed, and then repetition.

我当然知道,这只是CoMT的一个例子,对我来说是一个非常喜欢的例子,但是我想我’d从这个角度分享尽管它们可能有不同的用途,但它们的核心部分“music therapy 会议”如金伯利(Kimberly)所述仍然存在。

布莱恩·艾布拉姆斯 2011年2月9日,下午4:24


我应该在这里澄清我的意图–the term, “社区音乐疗法” (often abbreviated CoMT) actually does not, per se, signify 在做 community 工作 as a music therapist. In fact, as CoMT is described 通过 Pavlicevic and Ansdell (2004) it can very much involve “work”与个人。区别特征不是方法论上的特征,而是范式上的特征和哲学上的特征,具有特定的方向(以了解人,音乐和健康)。但是,它确实可以驱动和塑造实践“look like.”

我并不是说您和与GCSU计划相关的其他人实际上并没有进行CoMT,但很有可能“conventional” music therapy with a community (large group). 那里 are definitely many examples of music therapy 工作 that does not follow the sequential components of the 常规 therapy 会议, simply because they are not always relevant (or even possible) in many contexts. Read, for example, Pavlicevic’她在南非工作的一个例子,其中她基本上将自己和日常音乐疗法的敏感性用作“intervention”…几乎没有例子“sessions”完全没有,但她绝对是“doing” music therapy. I think it (and many more like this) is an excellent example of some of the larger potentials we, as music therapists, possess in our capacity to serve the public, beyond the 常规ly understood therapy model (which Ansdell calls the “consensus model”).

Thanks again for 您r example!

感谢您对此的概述‘typical’ 会议. Much of 您r 会议 layout is similar to my 会议 at the Center. I enjoyed 您r section about the environment. It is frustrating to have a staff bathroom in the music therapy/sensory room. Staff often interrupt a relaxation 会议 to come in and use the facilities. This is distracting for both therapist and client.

Back to the 典型 会议… of course, there are days when 4 out of 5 people are unavailable/refuse, and 您 might have quite a different 会议 with an individual (this happened today). But then, that is what I love about therapy. It’关于以最适合该人的方式实现您面前所有人的目标。阿仁’我们从事一项了不起的职业吗?

I had heard 您 were a GCSU alum (as am I), but I had no idea 您 工作ed with the Baldwin Service Center! They have since gone through a name change, and are now “丰富人生中心”, where I did many practicum hours and now 工作 5 days a week. What a small world!

@Brain您提出了一些宝贵的观点!我绝对同意,可能会有一些细微差别’t fit in the “常规治疗”我在这一点上描述的场景。但是,这超出了帖子的范围…but perhaps an idea for a future article? 😀 I appreciate 您r feedback! @Natalie I appreciate 您 sharing 您r example! @Elise You are absolutely right! I have had many 会议 where this “general” outline goes right out the window! More often than not, those are some of the best 会议, too 🙂

尽管音乐治疗师以外的任何人都可以提出听音乐的建议,但通过与他建立的融洽关系以及我对他与音乐关系的认识,我得以意识到,我们可以转移他的注意力更积极的事情。同样,给他的选择与过去提供的治疗方法是一致的,但这都不是“typical” nor a “session”, per se, as it was outside of our traditional schedule. In fact, he stayed for about 30 minutes, went to lunch, then came back for the scheduled weekly 会议, which looked much more like what 您 described in 您r post above.

我想您可以将其称为“crisis 介入”。不幸的是,在完成这些管理职责时,我可以使用其中的一点!大声笑

多么伟大的故事!谢谢你分享,朱莉! 〜金伯利

感谢金伯利(感谢您给我打电话)“Brain”…I usually take that as a compliment, unless someone is referring to my 一般, gray squishiness!).

虽然我同意讨论会话结构的特定变化可能超出了本文的范围(当然,我所提供的完全是作为示例),并且我确实很喜欢并同意您的最初建议,“There’没有这样的东西‘typical’音乐治疗课程,”我的回应重点是(分别)建议对“inherent” and “general rule”有关会话结构的后续语句的组件。我之所以这样分享,是因为(我代表自己发言)我努力以尽可能多的方式代表我们所做的事情。虽然我当然支持(并喜欢)采取一种或多种具体方法“stands”在音乐疗法的理论和实践上,我尝试(只要有可能)证明我看事物或工作的方式,而不是暗示一切的方式“truth”语句(当然,这很可能是无意发生的!)。用多元或主体间的语言说话不一定也可以是所有人’的首选风格(甚至每个人都认为最能代表该领域的风格),我也完全承认这一点。


金伯利 2011年2月21日下午12:59

大声笑!请把这当成一种赞美,“Brain”ðŸ〜‰我了解您的观点,但第一次却没有意识到。我试图在写作中弄清楚–似乎并不总是成功!–指出这些是我的观点,经验和理解。感谢您的提醒。 〜金伯利

布莱恩·艾布拉姆斯 2011年2月21日,下午6:18

我非常感谢这种感谢,金伯利。这都是一次非常好的,周到的对话。感谢您的领导。 BA
