SECTION: Music for Mental and Physical Health COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: MUSIC THERAPY FOR AT-RISK PARENTING: LULLABY 101 DESCRIPTION: In 1966, The Music Settlement of Cleveland was the first community music school in the country to establish a music therapy program. Numerous individuals with a variety of disabilities and diagnoses have been served over the course of its history. Music Therapists see clients at the University Circle campus and are assigned to various outreach contractual arrangements in either social service, medical, or educational organizations. The Lullaby 101 program began in 2007, with services geared to teen parents, parents with depression or other mental illnesses, parents of low socioeconomic status and parents of children at-risk. Parents served have been from age 15 years on up. Singing to infants is considered a universal caregiving behavior. Singing lullabies calms babies and facilitates a relaxation response in mothers that can help them cope with the demands of motherhood. An approach called “infant-directed singing” is one of the foundational tenets for this program. This involves working with a mother/caregiver to learn how to better respond to her baby‟s behaviors to music. This results in babies learning basic strategies to effectively interact with their environment. Teen mothers who are less likely to know healthy ways of stimulating their babies, can be taught to recognize and become more sensitive to babies‟ cues. Depressed mothers and their infants are more likely to experience insecure attachment. Infants of depressed mothers show physiological signs of chronic stress. These findings are all part of the rationale for offering music therapy groups for mothers who are at-risk. Lullaby 101‟s goals include articulation of how parents use music presently in their lives; defining a criteria for choosing calming music for babies; increasing lullaby repertoire; recognition and response to signs of babies‟ fussing/distress, overstimulation, calm/relaxation and contentment; applying or utilizing skills and repertoire learned in class at home with their babies; decreasing parents‟ sense of personal anxiety; and maintaining or increasing use of music as a tool for self-expression, coping, and/or inspiration. Music is used in a variety of ways including music-assisted progressive muscle relaxation; song/ lyric discussion providing opportunities to discuss hopes, dreams, challenges and support; interactive singing where participants learn/review lullabies or songs of their kin from a variety of cultures; interactive instrument playing in which participants may accompany lullabies or songs utilized for discussion; songwriting of original lyrics and/or melodies for personalized lullabies; and making recordings where participants choose selections, their order, and the type of accompaniment either they or the music therapist make. Since the inception of this program, The Music Settlement has partnered with numerous social service and medical agencies to reach the parents who may benefit. These have included Help Me Grow, Options for Families and Youth, St. Martin de Porres Center, Merrick House, Moms First and Connections Women‟s Maternal Mental Health Clinic. CURRENT STATUS: Lullaby 101 is financed by a combination of sources, such as United Way, foundation grants and hourly fees charged by The Music Settlement for services to partnering outreach agencies. The program will continue in 2011-12, most notably with a research project with mothers with depression and other mental 91
