Music Videotherapy
Six to eight week music psychotherapy group process for at-risk adolescents and those with emotional, behavioral, or conduct disorders as well as substance abuse and dual diagnosis populations. Focus of the workshop is on teamwork, cooperation, social skills development, problem-solving and self-expression. Secondary benefits include improved self esteem, moral development, and creation of personal goals.

Educational goals:
Students work cooperatively to create their own music CD and music video (depending on time frame chosen) focusing on important issues in their lives. Such issues may include bereavement, discrimination, anger management, gang dependence, drug abuse and relationship issues. Issues are addressed via a structured and goal-directed (i.e., participants chose and eventually create their own observable goals for each session) psychotherapeutic process that has been developed over the course of over 18 years experience with at-risk adolescents. Adolescents involved in this program have measurable/observable outcomes in a wide range of behaviors, including increased frustration tolerance, increased ability to work with others in a productive manner, increased ability to express self, increased self esteem, and increased ability to formulate goals that address a variety of maladaptive behaviors.

Methods used:
Participants will actively engage in song-writing related to topics relevant to setting (i.e. anger, at-risk behaviors, problem-solving).
Instructor will facilitate intervention and learning activities to appropriate levels based upon participant functioning, age, and developmental level.
