Creative Musical Expression
Acoustic Youth is a fourteen-week group therapy modality that combines music and mentoring, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness to empower teens. Each group member is encouraged to write and record a song about something in their life they would like to gain mastery over. This dynamic process is facilitated by a therapeutic team which consists of two seasoned clinicians, a musical mentor and a song engineer who work collectively with each teen to create their individual songs in a professional recording studio. The group's mission is for teenagers to develop resiliency through a fun and creative process. Group members find their inner voice through a variety of musical exercises and group discussions, all of which culminate in an empowering and healing experience.
