Music Therapy As An Intervention For Inpatient Treatment Of Suicidal Ideation

Music Therapy As An Intervention For Inpatient Treatment Of Suicidal Ideation

ABSTRACT: “This study examines the role music therapy plays in the treatment of people with suicidal ideation in an inpatient psychiatric setting. Through naturalistic inquiry, the study sought to describe participant reactions to music therapy in a group treatment setting and explain how the group was perceived to be of value. Inductive analysis of data led to the emergence of three main categories under which several themes were identified. The categories were PERSONAL CONTEXT, EXPERIENCE OF THE MUSIC THERAPY GROUP, and EFFECTIVENESS. Study outcomes are explained by components of Berne’s (1964) theory of Transactional Analysis (TA).”
