Elevations RTC, a residential treatment center for teens ages 13-18, is excited to implement Music Education Therapy within their clinical programming.
Elevations RTC works closely with Genote, a research-based music streaming platform which utilizes clinically tested music to help individuals struggling with numerous behavioral and emotional issues.
Genote has an extensive library of instrumental music ranging from classical to contemporary artists. The entire library is recorded, mastered and engineered exclusively for Genote. Their unique methodology dissects music into elements. Each element is combined with a specific psychophysiological response and triggers certain emotional and physiological responses within individuals. “The three elements we utilize are music analysis, scientific evaluation, and biometrics,” says Dr. Massimiliano Frani, CEO of Genote. “We use these elements to customize each intervention to a specific health and well-being objective. Our music therapy interventions provide world-class music performances, unmatched scientific research, simple to use technology, and non-invasive implementation.” Elevations RTC has implemented Genote’s interventions into the therapeutic plan for a small cohort of students. The students utilizing Genote interventions struggle with sleeplessness, aggressive behaviors and/or inattentiveness.
“Students work with their therapists to determine the best time for them to listen to the Genote library,” comments Chad Stark, MAEd, ACMHC, Primary Therapist at Elevations. “Students who obtain the privilege of carrying a laptop may listen to music when they feel it is appropriate for them. Students are also given Bluetooth speakers with headphones which they can listen to the music with.”
Representatives from Genote come to campus on a regular basis to assist students and receive direct feedback from the participants.
“The representatives from Genote are very helpful and offer guidance to students regarding the ways in which they are listening to the music,” says Stark. “So far, students are responding well to these music interventions. We’ve seen a clear emotional and physiological response from students after they have listened to Genote’s library.”
The introduction of Genote music interventions within Elevations RTC is still brand new. More concrete objective outcomes are still to be determined.
