Populations include individuals suffering with depression or anxiety disorders, psychiatric patients, alcoholics and substance abusers, persons with traumatic brain damage, and individuals with AIDS. It describes how music therapy can be used in the treatment of children and adolescents as well as the elderly and terminally ill.
