      Abstract: Welcome to Music Therapy Perspectives (MTP), volume 40, issue 1. There is a rich array of topics in this issue that I hope you find useful to your practice, whether clinical, educational, supervisory, or other. The work herein is stimulating, challenging, and of practical use. This issue was initially dedicated to social justice in music therapy; Drs Adenike Webb and Sangeeta Swamy have been working with authors for over a year to develop articles that give voice to people historically underrepresented in our profession. In this process, it became clear that more time was needed for authors to fully give form to their experiences and thoughts without restrictions of imposed deadlines. Articles for this focus, therefore, are planned for issue 2 for 2022. In the meantime, MTP continues to act, reviewing and revising our processes and protocols with a goal of increasing access and equity through critical reflexivity and discussions. The editorial board members, along with those from the Journal of Music Therapy, are increasing our collective and individual awareness of oppressive assumptions and how they can manifest at different stages of the peer-review process. We have a workshop scheduled with a national leader in this area and are developing a continuing education module to focus on how to expand access to the scholarly space and support authors.

  • Survey of Current Financial Needs of Undergraduate Music Therapy Students

      Pages: 42 - 49
      Abstract: AbstractStudents attending college rely on a variety of social and financial resources to cover the personal and academic costs of higher education. The most common tool for students is financial aid, which may include loans, needs-based grants, and work–study. Federal financial aid is designed to increase accessibility for individuals to pursue a college degree and is generally determined by their family’s assets or socioeconomic status. Research has suggested positive and negative relationships between students’ socioeconomic status and their academic outcomes. As this relationship has yet to be explored in music therapy, the primary purpose of this study was to explore the current financial needs and economic diversity of American undergraduate music therapy students. A survey was sent in April of 2020 for dissemination to undergraduate music therapy majors. Students from across the United States (n = 346) completed the questionnaire. Key findings included (a) most music therapy students (61.7%) took out student loans during the 2019–2020 academic year and expect substantial levels of debt upon graduation (>$10,000); (b) about one-third (34.4%) of respondents received the Pell Grant, a needs-based grant, in the past year; (c) a considerable majority (77.5%) were employed during school; and (d) 97% of students received additional financial assistance from their families. This study also compared the needs between BIPOC (Black, indigenous, people of color) and white students. Implications of findings as they relate to music therapy education and further research regarding the financial need and socioeconomic status are also discussed.

  • Music Therapy for Hospitalized Antepartum Patients: A Mixed Methods Study

      Pages: 59 - 67
      Abstract: AbstractThis study reports the benefits of individual music therapy with 5 mothers hospitalized due to complications related to their pregnancies. These five expectant mothers, hospitalized for a range of reasons, participated in 1 to 5 music therapy sessions focused primarily on their emotional well-being. An analysis of data from the Antepartum Bedrest Emotional Impact Inventory revealed significant changes (p = .0006) in the emotional health of these expectant mothers after their music therapy sessions. Concomitant analysis of post-session questionnaires suggested four primary types of emotional benefit: (1) improved connections to family, (2) normalization of the hospital experience, (3) emotional relief, and (4) new resources to manage the hospital experience. These benefits are described within the context of the music therapy sessions along with a discussion of practical challenges that arose while implementing music therapy in this hospital environment.

  • Neurologic Music Therapy with a Habilitative Approach for Older Adults
           with Dementia: A Feasibility Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 76 - 83
      Abstract: AbstractThe incidence of dementia continues to increase in our aging population. Numerous cognitive, behavioral, and psychological symptoms accompany this diagnosis, and the need for non-pharmacological interventions that may alleviate them is of paramount importance. This feasibility study presents the results of a crossover randomized control trial that evaluated the effects of neurologic music therapy with a habilitative approach on the treatment acceptability, cognition, mood, and behavior of older adults with moderate to severe dementia. Twenty-nine residents living in an assisted living community rotated between 50-minute group sessions of Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) techniques implemented with a habilitative approach, an Enrichment Program (EP) that combined physical and cognitive exercises, and a non-facilitated television program (TV). Data were collected before and after each crossover period using attendance, the Neuropsychiatric Inventory-Nursing Home (NPI-NH) version, the Dementia Mood Picture Test (DMPT), and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). NMT had the highest level of treatment acceptability, as measured by attendance and adherence. NPI-NH scores were the lowest after TV viewings, and DMPT results were the highest after NMT, followed by EP and TV. The positive effect of NMT on general cognitive functioning for residents with moderately severe cognitive decline was remarkable. These results suggest that NMT with a habilitative approach is a viable tool to engage older adults with dementia. The promising results on cognition and its high treatment acceptability make a powerful case to increase NMT use with this population and continue studying its effectiveness.

           A Descriptive Study

      Pages: 84 - 93
      Abstract: AbstractIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many music therapists in the United States turned to telehealth music therapy sessions as a strategy to continue services with older adults. However, the nature and perception of telehealth music therapy services for this age group are unknown. The purpose of this study was to describe music therapy telehealth practices with older adults in the United States including information related to session implementation, strengths and challenges, and adaptations to clinical practice. Of the 110 participants in the United States who responded to the survey (25.2% response rate), 69 reported implementing telehealth music therapy services with older adults and responded to a 32-item survey. Quantitative and qualitative analyses were conducted. Results indicated that while all participants had provided telehealth music therapy for no more than 6 months, their experiences with telehealth varied. Based on participant responses, telehealth session structure, strengths, challenges, and implemented changes are presented. Overall, 48% of music therapists reported that they planned to continue telehealth music therapy with older adults once pandemic restrictions are lifted. Further study on the quality, suitability, and acceptability of telehealth services with older adults is recommended.

  • Perceptions of Self-Determination in Music Therapy for Individuals
           Diagnosed with Intellectual Disabilities: A Survey of Music Therapists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 94 - 103
      Abstract: AbstractIndividuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) experience positive outcomes and desire to participate in decisions regarding various aspects of their lives but are often less likely to access this right than their peers without a diagnosis. These individuals may be able to increase their proficiency in self-determination through practice, but it is unclear the extent to which they may be involved in healthcare-related decisions, specifically while participating in music therapy. Through a survey of board-certified music therapists currently serving individuals diagnosed with I/DD, in this study, the author sought to identify aspects of self-determination being incorporated into music therapy treatment with individuals diagnosed with I/DD and to determine the extent to which self-determination is emphasized. Results of this study indicated elements perceived by music therapists to be essential to self-determination, benefits associated with access to self-determination, methods of incorporating self-determination into music therapy sessions, relationships between work experience, attitudes about self-determination, and the frequency of self-determination being incorporated into sessions. Based on the results of this study, future research could explore potential implications of music therapists’ educational background and work setting on self-determination and should include perspectives from service users.

  • The Use of Preferred Music to Improve the Sleep Quality of a High School
           Athlete with Post-Concussion Syndrome

      Pages: 111 - 113
      Abstract: AbstractDifficulty sleeping is a common long-term complaint for those who have experienced head trauma and brain injury (Hvingelby, 2020). A lack of sleep can lead to neurological dysfunction and reduce the ability to regulate thinking and behavior (Tan, 2004). Music therapy can promote sleep quality and may be an effective, safe, and affordable treatment for those with sleep problems (Kavurmaci et al., 2020). This study aimed to examine the use of preferred music to improve the self-reported sleep quality, pain, and mood of a high school athlete with post-concussion syndrome. A single-subject, quasi-experimental design was used to examine the use of a preferred music playlist to promote relaxation and sleep in conjunction with weekly live music therapy telehealth sessions. Results indicated an increase in relaxation and ability to sleep, along with improved mood and decreased pain. The results of this study suggest that music therapy may be helpful in addressing pain, mood, and sleep quality in individuals who have experienced concussions.

      Pages: 3 - 13
      Abstract: AbstractTwelve music therapists were observed working clinically in 3 to 5 of their music therapy sessions and subsequently interviewed about their clinical work in order to further examine and define the essential characteristics of therapeutic singing in music therapy clinical practice. Observational and interview data were analyzed separately using procedures consistent with qualitative content analysis and then integrated to provide a comprehensive picture of these singing practices. Analysis of these data revealed 3 interrelated dimensions of therapeutic singing that were integrated into the larger realization of therapeutic singing: (1) foundational vocal skills, (2) vocal engagement, and (3) authenticity. Implications for the education and training of music therapy students, vocal health, and a reevaluation of the American Music Therapy Association’s competencies contextualize these findings for the profession as a whole.

           Methods-Based Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 14 - 22
      Abstract: AbstractAs music therapists, music is our primary realm of understanding and action and our distinctive way of joining with a client to help them attain optimal health and well-being. As such, we have adopted and advocate for a music-focused, methods-based (M-B) approach to music therapy pre-internship education and training. In an M-B approach, students’ learning is centered on the 4 music therapy methods of composing, improvising, re-creating, and listening to music and how these music experiences can be designed and implemented to address the health needs of the diverse clientele whom they will eventually encounter as practicing clinicians. Learning is highly experiential, with students authentically participating in each of the methods and reflecting on these self-experiences as a basis for their own clinical decision-making. This is differentiated from a population based (P-B) approach, wherein students’ attention is directed at acquiring knowledge about the non-musical problems of specific “clinical populations” and the “best practice” music interventions that are presumed to address these problems. Herein, we discuss both approaches, identifying the limitations of a P-B perspective and outlining the benefits of an M-B curriculum and its relevance to 21st-century music therapy practice.

      Pages: 23 - 32
      Abstract: AbstractChildren who experience multiple stressors may benefit from music therapy programming that addresses the development of social skills, self-expression, and coping mechanisms. Emerging evidence supports the use of improvisation techniques, group songwriting, and drumming activities to support self-regulation and increase social competence. In this article, we aimed to describe the inception and evaluate the implementation of a music therapy program for children at a residential treatment facility for women with substance use disorders (SUDs) at Dove’s Nest, a residential facility for women with SUDs. In this facility, children can reside with their mothers during the length of treatment. We collected pre/post data from children ages 5–11 (N = 20) who attended 8 nonconsecutive music therapy sessions by asking the mothers to complete the Home and Community Social Behavior Scale (HCSBS; Merrell, K. W., & Caldarella, P. (2008). Home & Community Social Behavior Scales user’s guide. Paul H. Brookes Publishing Company). Statistical analyses showed no significant changes on individual HCSBS subscale pre–post comparisons. The total number of scale items on HCSBS flagged as areas of concern was reduced both in social competence (31 pre to 6 post or a decrease of 80.65%) and antisocial behavior (34 pre to 17 post or a decrease of 50%) scales. Evaluation results indicated that even though the children assessed may score within average ranges for social competence and antisocial behaviors, they still exhibit a high number of areas of concern at baseline, particularly in the defiant/disruptive category, which warrants preventive interventions. Clinicians may need to focus on interventions that promote social integration, self-regulation, and assertiveness while addressing behaviors such as blaming and attention seeking.

      Pages: 33 - 41
      Abstract: AbstractIn this study, 15 early career music therapists were interviewed about their academic, clinical, personal, and early professional experiences to define the key characteristics of their professional identity formation. Subsequent analysis of these data revealed that for these music therapists, early career identity formation was characterized by 3 developmental tasks: (1) formulating a professional identity, (2) identifying and practicing a preferred working style, and (3) moving from a single approach to practice and drawing from a variety of theories and approaches. Furthermore, their early career identity formation was characterized by 4 sequential subphases: (1) openness to change, (2) experiencing complexity, (3) freeing up, and (4) increased confidence. Barriers to healthy identity formation were also discussed. Implications for education and training, along with the importance of facilitating mentorship opportunities for early career professionals, were proposed to connect the findings to academic and professional life.

      Pages: 50 - 58
      Abstract: AbstractThere is limited literature to support the use of music therapy with unhoused persons and more research is needed to deepen the understanding of music therapy with this population. This researcher aimed to gather information from music therapists who work with unhoused persons to gain more perspective on the perceived benefits of the music therapy treatment process. Three music therapists were interviewed; interviews were then transcribed and coded to find themes regarding perceived benefits of music therapy with unhoused persons. The four themes derived from the data were increased resilience factors, facilitating connections, creating a safe space, and increased expression. Findings support music therapy attending to many levels of human need for unhoused individuals. These findings can be used as recommendation for practice and program development for the use of music therapy with unhoused persons and also point to a need for more research to understand the benefits of specific music therapy techniques and treatment methods with unhoused persons and subgroups of the unhoused community.

  • The Effect of Music Therapy on Perceived Parental Stress in Perinatal
           Care: An Exploratory Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 68 - 75
      Abstract: AbstractThe perinatal experience contains many stressors that can impact parental mental health. We examined the integration of music therapy (MT), an evidence-based health profession, and its stress reduction role in parents during their inpatient maternity and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) experience. The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) and Stress Numeric Rating Scale (SNRS-11) were used to measure stress reduction in 34 maternity and NICU parents (17 maternity patients and 17 NICU parents). Participants included parents on the antepartum unit (expecting parents on bedrest), laboring parents, pre-operation parents before cesarean delivery, parents of full-term healthy infants on the postpartum unit, and parents of premature infants on the NICU. Results were calculated based upon number of sessions rather than total number of participants and indicated that after one MT session, a 50% reduction in the SNRS-11 was measured in NICU and antepartum parents. The PSS score demonstrated a more modest stress reduction in the NICU parents but failed to achieve a statistically significant decrease in the maternity group. Findings were in line with existing literature in MT-associated stress reduction levels and may be integrated as part of an ongoing continuity of care during pregnancy, delivery, and NICU hospitalization. Earlier screening for stress may benefit parents during their perinatal hospital stay. Further research exploring the benefits of MT, as part of continuum of care and stress management for the inpatient perinatal parent population, may encourage the inclusion of MT services and improve quality of care.

  • Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum: Music Therapists’ Work with
           Speech-Language Pathologists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 104 - 110
      Abstract: AbstractAdolescents on the autism spectrum may experience challenges with multiple domains of communication that impact their quality of life. Both music therapists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) implement activities to address these challenges. Empirical evidence suggests that incorporating music into treatment can be an effective way to improve communication. The purpose of this article is to provide suggestions for music therapists assisting adolescents on the autism spectrum to improve their communication skills and ways to collaborate with SLPs in doing so. In this paper, we discuss interprofessional collaborative models (e.g., interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary) and competencies (e.g., coordination, adaptability), as well as music-based clinical experiences that appeal to adolescents, and target improvement of communication skills for learners with complex communication needs.
