• Sounds of strength towards recovery: a program proposal for inpatient psychiatric care

      Bouissou, Gabrielle (2018-05)
      "Sounds of Strength Towards Recovery would allow for an additional step towards comprehensive psychiatric care. As cited previously, the literature points towards the efficacy of the music therapy modality as part of treatment for psychiatric inpatients. Besides standard documentation through developing assessments and documenting individual and group sessions, music therapy would be part of the team dialogue about treatment goals for patients. A holistic approach to care recognizes the patient beyond the diagnosis. Music therapy, specifically engagement in services offered through Sounds of Strength Towards Recovery, can contribute to painting the entire picture of who a patient is. Thorough documentation of progress in individual and group music therapy sessions will allow for tracking of individual outcomes." -- pages 34-35
