Music Therapy Awareness

During the week of February 24th, the SWOSU Music Therapy Program held their 7th Annual Music Therapy Awareness Expo. Music therapy is a clinical practice designed to use music in a therapeutic process to reach individuals with genetic disorders, brain injuries, alleviate stress and pain, and promote communication and wellness. Licensed practitioners hold an expertise in musical performance and psychology.

In support of this year's expo, the Al Harris Library has organized a book display on music therapy. If you are curious about the profession or interested in becoming a music therapy major, we recommend visiting our display and contacting Dr. Sophia Lee in Music Therapy.

To see music therapy in practice, watch the following video by photojournalist Benjamin Hager capturing the work of music therapist, Moreen Bosch.
