Music therapy sessions are child led to support autonomy and a sense of control, which are central to positive coping skills.
A typical session may include some of the following interventions;
use of familiar songs
improvised music making
controlled musical stimulation
Music Therapists focus on what people can do, rather than any limitations they may experience. No previous musical experience is necessary.
We accept referrals from the Multidisciplinary Teams of the above listed specialities.
The CHI Music Therapy Department facilitates clinical MT placements for students on the MA Music Therapy training programme at the University of Limerick. Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of the work, we cannot support Transition Year or other work experience placements
