Abstract: This paper aims to present a music therapy (MT) process as it applies to severely brain damaged multiple sclerosis (MS) patients whose main neuropshychological problem is adynamia, i.e., lethargy, passivity. The MT process comprises the principles and skills used to address patients' needs and to help them compensate for their deficits.
