dc.description.abstractDrop the Beat Music Therapy will focus on individuals with type 2 diabetes by providing an outpatient music therapy psychoeducational group. This psychoeducational group will be addressing the needs and interests of the participants in order to help alleviate the burdens they experience due to their chronic medical condition. Drop the Beat will consist of various music therapy experiences that will be designed to provide opportunities to express creativity, expressive freedom, spontaneity, playfulness within structure, increase self-awareness, and enhance group cohesion. In addition, Drop the Beat will provide education about the effects of music and use of music for self-care, as an addition to the patient’s existing self-care regimen. This paper presents a proposal for a music therapy program with collaboration with the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York, New York.en_US
