MusicWorx Toolbox: Music Therapy and Adolescent Populations
By: Noelle Pederson, BA, MT–BC, NICU MT
"What do music therapy sessions with adolescents look like?" is a common question amongst the music therapy community. This is incredibly challenging to answer. Considering how many different populations exist within the adolescent demographic, it is unlikely that two sessions look alike within each population. Music Therapy and Adolescent Populations provides potential goal areas, various intervention ideas within several mediums, examples of sample lyrics, and processing themes tested with a variety of teen populations including all the following:
These intervention ideas are thorough enough that they can be replicated exactly to create a successful therapeutic session, or they can be modified to incorporate any therapists' unique artistic interpretation. Expand on each intervention listed under the session plans in order to create up to one hour of equivalent topic therapeutic musical exercises, or use two or more interventions interchangeably to create a multi-dynamic session that can accommodate hours of exceptional music therapy interventions!
