Nonverbal, Art, and Music Therapy
Music and Art Therapy is a fun way to give our clients therapeutic options outside of traditional “Talk” Therapy. Art and music have also been shown to help with neuroplasticity: The process in which the brain actually heals itself.
Benefits of Nonverbal Therapy
The effects of music and art on the human brain is a bit of a mystery. For instance, music has been shown to break down the walls of the most hardened of individuals who would never let their guard down in any type of verbal interaction. Incorporating this therapy into our treatment program offers our clients a chance to take a mental break from intense verbal therapy they experience throughout a typical day in rehab. Many breakthroughs have manifested through art and music therapy. Plain and simple; Music and art heal the soul.

About Nonverbal Therapy Programs
What is the Process of Music Therapy?
- In Music Therapy a qualified therapist implements writing, playing, and listening to music in a calming therapeutic environment.
- We incorporate two forms of Music Therapy at Station House. We have a trained professional teach our clients the art of African Drumming and we also have Listening Therapy sessions which the clients are able to see, firsthand, the value of expressing themselves through music.
- In listening sessions, the clients are given a topic such as depression, happiness, anxiety, or loneliness and are instructed to choose a song that they identify with that particular topic.
- Group members listen to each other’s songs and are asked to share and identify their feelings and interpretations of the songs.
What is the Process of Art Therapy?
During an Art Therapy session, clients are asked to create a painting, drawing, collage or other mediums based on specific topics and are asked to share and interpret their creations to the other group members. This gives our clients an alternative way to express themselves other than verbally..
