Initiating the music therapy treatment process takes a significant amount of work involving music therapy assessment, goal setting, rapport building, and treatment planning. However, one element of the process that always happens but is not highlighted is treatment termination. This concept encompasses not only handling the logistics of ending music therapy treatment, but also the clinical finesse in providing closure for the client and yourself in a safe and effective way.
In this 54th episode of the Music Therapy Round Table podcast, we will discuss the concept of treatment termination and importance of closure.
