Save the date! 15-17 februari 2020 Training muziektherapie en neonatologie: ArtEZ Muziektherapie Enschede!

Coming to ArtEZ Enschede in 2020: Rhythm, Breath and Lullaby NICU MT training!

Music therapy services provided by music therapy experts trained by First Sounds: Rhythm, Breath and Lullaby teams utilize live sound and music to replicate the auditory environment in the womb. By re-creating a womb-like environment through entrained sounds and music, music therapy has been shown to deepen infant sleep-state, support infant self-regulation, assist in the stabilization of breathing and heart rates, enhance parent/infant bonding, sooth irritability, re-enforce feeding/sucking rhythms and weight gain, and promote a sense of safety during painful procedures.

For the full-term infant hospitalized in the NICU due to complex medical needs, music therapy interventions including: contingent singing, the use of harmonic and melodic instruments to provide a “blanket of sound”, tonal-vocal holding, songs of kin and lullabies that may provide comfort, stability, promote bonding, establish social connections and foster healing via self-regulation, as well as address the developmental, physical and emotional needs of the infants.

Families of NICU infants may experience stress, trauma and anxiety related to to their infant’s hospitalization. Music psychotherapy interventions for families of NICU infants seek to encourage and support the caregiver-infant bonding process, provide trauma amelioration, offer a means of coping, supply a tangible way for caregivers to connect to their infant through songwriting/creating, to provide respite for families.
