This is an interesting article about a non-profit that provides services to war veterans in the form of guitar lessons. It doesn’t really consult a music therapist or refer to Music Therapy as an independent field, but I like the concept of providing instruments to veterans who may then learn an instrument and develop coping skills.
SO, maybe an MT-BC could offer some consult services or direction to help the organization reach its goals? Or find some way to get involved? Just an idea…
I searched for research investigating the use of music therapy with this population, and couldn’t find anything current. Does anyone know of any?
