SECTION: Music for Mental and Physical Health COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: MUSIC THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS IN RECOVERY: LEARNING IN LAYERS DESCRIPTION: In 1966, the Music Settlement of Cleveland was the first community music school in the country to establish a music therapy program. Many individuals with a variety of disabilities and diagnoses have been served in the course of its history. One of their programs, Learning in Layers, is designed to work with men who have a history of criminal behavior and multifaceted problems including drug and alcohol addiction and recidivism. The program is designed to improve in gradual increments, the daily coping skills of former convicts who are re-entering the community through a combination of educational and psychotherapeutic intervention strategies. In six weeks of structured treatment, each person attends a variety of groups including informational classes, AA meetings, cognitive behavior therapy sessions, discussion groups, life skills workshops, spiritual development counseling and music therapy. Music is used to promote: Physical benefits through the use of relaxation techniques in working with anger and symptom management Educational benefits through the understanding of basic structures of music, such as learning how to problem solve and make decisions Emotional stability by helping to explore and identify feelings and self-awareness through lyric interpretation Social interaction by developing better communication skills, relationship building and leadership skills through the use of drum circles, music listening, and hand chime ensembles CURRENT STATUS: Learning in Layers is financed through a combination of foundation support and hourly fees charged by The Music Settlement for services to partnering outreach agencies. The project is ongoing as new individuals continually enroll. RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: Through pre- and post- program surveys completed at the beginning and end of the 6-week program period, participants are asked to self-assess across a number of life skill categories. The data is then compared to evaluate program effectiveness across these assessment areas. During the past three years, the music therapist has collected data on over 200 clients. The results indicate a high satisfaction rate. Participant reports are also compiled in narrative form as well.
