Can Music Therapy Help Children With Emotional Problems?

Music therapy is a clinical intervention by a trained professional that can support the emotional, psychological, cognitive, social, and communicative needs of people. It especially works for children because it’s non-threatening and playful, promotes trust, and doesn’t need verbal skills. In the brain, music can bypass the parts involved in planning and language and go right to the limbic system which is associated with emotions.

Music therapy can help children manage difficult emotions, communicate better, and improve behavioral and social problems.
