Group music therapy helps the clients connect with one another and work together. Group goals and objectives are achieved through music therapy interventions. Respect for each other, self-expression, and social skills are some of the goals developed in sessions. Being a part of a group with similar needs can provide a great support for clients to relate to others in meaningful ways.
"I feel better motivated and uplifted. I feel like I can do anything and like it's really helping me out.”
