Abstract [en]

This essay presents a brief history of Music Therapy and describes the background, method and thinking behind Functionally-oriented Music Therapy – FMT. The essay includes two case studies describing my work with two clients during the last year of my training to become an FMT therapist. The topics explored are intrinsic (inner) motivation and self-esteem in the context of functional development in school children.  The research question for the essay is to discuss whether Functionally-oriented Music Therapy can assist school children to rediscover their inner motivation and increase their self-esteem.

 

FMT encourages brain activity through sensory stimulation, movement and play – without verbal instruction, critical evaluation or praise.  The FMT therapist meets the client with knowledge, understanding and unconditional acceptance of his/her present level of physical and mental function and with the intention of creating opportunities for development at every level.  I have found that the work and approach used in FMT can play a vital role in helping school children towards increased inner motivation and self-esteem.
