According to the American Association for Music Therapy (https://www.musictherapy.org/), “Music therapy interventions can be designed to address a variety of healthcare & educational goals: Promote Wellness, Manage Stress, Alleviate Pain, Express Feelings, Enhance Memory, Improve Communication, Promote Physical Rehabilitation and more.”
The Certification Board for Music Therapists (http://www.cbmt.org/) provides national certification for music therapists. Currently there is no music therapy license available in Maryland.
