Soundtracks, Dementia, and Lizzo

Soundtracks, Dementia, and Lizzo

What a cool episode! I learned alongside my guests when discussing music therapy with Alison Hughey, a board certified music therapist. She discussed the research support for music therapy for a wide variety of people, including people with dementia and babies in NICU units. We discuss the lack of awareness and knowledge of her field, even among other healthcare and mental healthcare providers! She answers a fun icebreaker question and also does a great job of distinguishing music being therapeutic from music therapy itself. I hope you enjoy!
