Rock Band Therapy!

Rock bands are great therapy!  Either listening to rock music or, in this case, playing in a rock band offers great therapeutic value!

We have a patient rock band at the psychiatric hospital where I sometimes do music therapy groups.  The rock band therapy group is one of the most popular and sought after groups in the psycho-social rehabilitation program!

The following news story out of Australia truly demonstrates the value of rock band type music therapy groups.

The band 'Not Quiet Right' were formed during a music therapy program run by St Laurence Community Services in Ballarat.

Each member of the band suffers from either an acquired brain injury or a neurological disease.

Check out there music video clip here:
