ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to survey Board Certified Music Therapists in the US to examine (a) the demographics of the music therapists working with this population in a non-school setting, (b) assessments used by the music therapists, (c) goals for clients, and (d) treatment methods used in the treatment of adolescents with emotional and/or
behavioral disorders. The participants in this study were board certified music therapists working with emotional and/or behavioral impairments outside of the school setting. Of the total of 111 surveys sent to music therapists who possibly met the inclusion criteria, 27 were returned (N=27). The findings from this study were compared to the findings
from a recent study by Polutnik investigating the role ofmusic therapy with children with EBD in school settings. The results indicate that there are many similarities between music therapy with EBD populations inside and outside of the school setting, along with some differences. The findings further reveal that there are a variety of treatment
considerations for music therapists working with the EBD population in both schools and other settings.
