Music Therapy for Teens in Eugene and Springfield, OR
Teens face a tremendous amount of stress from peer experiences, academic pressures, and in evaluating how they relate to social expectations. Music therapy is a fun and interesting experience that reduces stress, challenges social culture, and allows for free expression without judgment. Songwriting and lyric analysis is a particularly therapeutic experience for teens because it allows for introspection and expression. Difficult themes can be explored thorough songwriting because music is one of only a few creative expressions that society already allows for emotional expression. Music therapy is an experience that takes time, and requires a therapeutic relationship. It’s just as important to have a therapist you’ve developed trust with as it is to have a therapist that can bring high quality music to the experience.
