It’s my pleasure to introduce this week’s topic for Week #9 “Working on Us” by:

Dwight L. Roth of “Roth Poetry”  Topic: Music Therapy

~💚~

Music is my therapy when I can't put into words what I am feeling because, it's too much & too complicated. I have a playlist for everything.

Music therapy treatment and supportive interventions for people of all ages and ability levels to address their social, communication, emotional, physical, cognitive, sensory, and spiritual needs.”  – Certification Board for Music Therapists

Prompt #1 Questions:

  • Have you ever received music therapy as part of your treatment?  If so, what kind of music was introduced to you?
  • Do you listen to music ( if/when) you meditate?  If so, what kind of music do you listen to?
  • If you have never tried music therapy as a treatment, what types of music calm and/or mellow you?
  • Do you believe music helps everyone and there is really no use for therapy in this regard?

 

Prompt #2 Music Selection:

  1. I have never had music therapy. I’m pretty sure the music I often listen to would not be therapeutic for me, however I sense that classical music would be very therapeutic for me. I’m quite sensitive and classical to me is sensitive as well.
