Supporting Child Grief and Trauma
When a child experiences illness in the family, loss or trauma, music therapy can provide an outlet to help channel their emotions and experience. Music therapy can provide therapeutic supports to school-age children, helping them to process grief or personal traumas by encouraging the ability to express feelings, offering positive coping strategies and music tools for self-regulation.
