Music therapy for people with schizophrenia and schizophrenia-like disorders

AUTHORS’ CONCLUSIONS: Moderate- to low-quality evidence suggests that music therapy as an addition to standard care improves the global state, mental state (including negative and general symptoms), social functioning, and quality of life of people with schizophrenia or schizophrenia-like disorders. However, effects were inconsistent across studies and depended on the number of music therapy sessions as well as the quality of the music therapy provided. Further research should especially address the long-term effects of music therapy, dose-response relationships, as well as the relevance of outcome measures in relation to music therapy.


Music Therapy seems to be good, but some schizophrenic people are real musicians! :slight_smile:

I never liked music therapy in inpatient! I always tried to slink off to my room during it. I do enjoy listening to music on my own though. maybe playing it if I learned how
