The use of music therapy with burn patients
Journal/Book: Journal of Music Therapy. 1979; 16: 138-148.
Abstract: Burn patients, who are isolated to avoid infection, experience great sensory deprivation that can be alleviated by singing, humming, and (for those well enough) hand-clapping. The sensory stimulation of a pleasant activity is particularly useful in producing a nonthreatening environment for child patients. (24 ref)
