RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: IMNF is actively engaged in research to document clinical outcomes. The national importance of the Institute‟s clinical research was recognized by the United States Administration on Aging, which provided a grant to support the Institute's work on innovative music-based approaches to stroke and dementia care. The treatment approaches developed by the Institute have been recognized as best practices in the field and serve as models for many other health care providers. The IMNF has engaged such outside research agencies as the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) to provide data analysis on large scale music therapy studies using a variety of standardized measures. Clinical effectiveness is measured utilizing standardized tools which objectively rate changes in physical, cognitive, communication and psychosocial well-being. Such tools include: Mini-mental status exam (MMSE), Functional Independence Measures (FIM), Boston Aphasia Battery and Quality of Life. Recently funded studies include: The Effect of Active Music Making on Depression and Apathy in Community-Based Day Health Care Patients with Neurological Impairments: A Non-randomized controlled clinical trial Enhancing Community-based and Home Care with Music Therapy ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: www.imnf.org Publications: Tomaino ,C.M.

SECTION: Music for Mental and Physical Health COUNTRY: China PROJECT: USING MUSIC TO CHANNEL AND REGULATE EMOTIONS: THE BEIJING SCHOOL PROJECT FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED DESCRIPTION: Started in early 2011, this school-based program works with small groups of visually impaired children through music. Its goals are to improve appropriate social behavior, emotional self-regulation and ultimately improve school performance. Children are engaged through a combination of singing and instrument playing to channel impulses and learn how to work cooperatively with other children. Emotions are channeled through the use of instruments chosen by the students to help them express intense and chaotic feelings. Through learning how to play instruments harmoniously together social bonds are created. The teacher provides strong rhythmic and harmonic support to the students on the piano and through verbal interventions. So far, approximately twenty children have received services. CURRENT STATUS: The project is currently ongoing and might be expanded in the near future. It is currently being funded by the Beijing Education Bureau, and the Chinese Music Therapy Association. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: www.cmta.com.cn RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: Some sessions are video recorded and all sessions notated in an ongoing journal kept by the therapist heading the program. These materials are then studied for behavioral changes in the children and provide a means by which intervention strategies are evaluated. At this early stage of implementation, improvement has already been noted by the music teacher in charge in terms of reduced levels of aggression and agitation as well as strengthening self-esteem and communication skills with others.
