Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Music therapy for veterans diagnosed with mental illness
by Fani, Sofia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 57; 1493117
Abstract (Summary)

Veterans may have experienced challenging combat situations which may result in being diagnosed with mental illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and substance abuse disorder. Agencies such as U.S. VETS-Long Beach provide many services to support such veterans as they transition into civilian life. The academic literature provides evidence that music therapy is a beneficial intervention for veterans diagnosed with mental illness. However, many agencies, including U.S. VETS-Long Beach, lack funding for music therapy groups. The purpose of this project is to create a grant proposal that may be submitted on behalf of U.S. VETS-Long Beach to obtain funding for group music therapy services for veterans diagnosed with mental illness. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
