Supporting attachments in vulnerable families through an early intervention school-based group music therapy programme
This chapter describes a family-based music therapy programme offered in schools in Limerick city, Ireland. Families experiencing risk and vulnerability due to their social, geographic, and economic circumstances have the opportunity to participate in a series of weekly music therapy sessions. This Irish school-based music therapy group programme was provided for the needs of marginalized or at-risk families. The programme was reported by teachers and caregivers to have improved the quality of relationships between caregivers and children. Relationships were nurtured and the development of stronger bonds was observed.
