AbstractThis proposal is for a full-time music therapist position at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia. There is a wide range of physical/medical, psychosocial, and cognitive goals that need to be addressed for children in the hospital environment, to treat them most effectively and efficiently. Music therapy can achieve many of these goals in a significantly effective and long-lasting way. It is also a cost-effective way to achieve these goals. By establishing a positive rapport with the patient, family, and medical staff, the music therapist provides treatment aimed at the overall improvement and health of the children and their families. The full-time music therapist will work both individually and in group settings, utilizing a variety of techniques, instruments, and skills to address these goals. The addition of music therapy at this hospital will benefit the patients, families, staff, and overall hospital environment.
