In music therapy, existing songs can be used to help clients with self-expression, identification of feelings and development of positive coping skills. Techniques such as lyric analysis and lyric discussion can provide opportunities for clients to critically think about ideas and concepts with the goal to adapt positive strategies for themselves.
