MUSIC THERAPY

Music therapy is the systematic use of music by trained professionals to facilitate the healing and positive personal growth of people with identified developmental, emotional, intellectual, physical, mental, social or spiritual needs.

 

Music Therapy is the use of music interventions and musical activities by a qualified Music Therapist in a process designed to meet individualized physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual needs, within the context of a therapeutic relationship. 

Music Therapy is about making music (singing/playing instruments/moving to music) as well as listening to music. Live music is preferred, though recorded music may be used.



何谓音乐治疗?

音乐治疗是透过音乐与音乐活动, 以期帮助个体达到生理, 心理, 情绪, 社交, 认知等方面的治疗效果。

这一切都需在一个治疗的环境与关系之下
, 由合格音乐治疗师来设计, 执行或监督。

音乐治疗不只静态的聆听音乐而已。

音乐治疗是以个体积极参与音乐的创作及表达为主
, 这包括了歌唱, 乐器弹奏, 音乐律动等。

虽然音乐治疗师会使用录制之音乐来进行治疗
, 但现场演奏来进行治疗的方式仍是音乐治疗师之优先选择。
