Keywords:group music therapy stages, attention activation
AbstractDuring a music therapy session, the therapist must meet the needs of the clients/therapeutic indications-goals. The following general stages of a music therapy session have been identified: focus of attention, regulation of interest-arousal level, dialogue, and conclusions. This paper presents a case study with practical description of the structure of a music therapy session for a group of young adults, how the input data for the group members is analysed, how the therapeutic objectives are established, depending on the strengths of each member and how the structural elements are managed, from the point of view of the content. Working techniques are described, to address psychodynamic aspects and how to assess the members and the group evolutions.
