MUSIC

MUSIC THERAPY

Presence of a professional of the music area

Presence of a professional of the music-therapeutic area with specific relational and musical competences

Absence of a specific therapeutic setting

 

Presence of a structured therapeutic setting

Absence of a specific  intervention model

Presence of a music-therapeutic referential model grounded on theoretical and methodological criteria

Aims: temporary well-being, improving mood, promoting socialization, memories and stimulation of frames of mind, relaxation, etc

Aims (aspiring to become stable and long-lasting over time): attenuation of behavioral and psychiatric symptoms and prevention/stabilization of complications; increase in communication and relationship skills

Contents: structured musical initiatives (rhythmic use of instruments, singing, movement associated to music, etc) and listening to music (classical, favorite music, etc)

Contents: sonorous-musical improvisation; listening activities that involve verbal and elaborative competences (preferably at initial stages of dementia)
