Music Therapy Featured in NCCIH Clinical Digest

April 14, 2016 01:16 PM

Music therapy is featured in the April 2016 edition of NCCIH Clinical Digest, the monthly e-newsletter of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the federal focal point for medical research in the United States.  NCCIH Clinical Digest offers evidence-based information on complementary health approaches, including scientific literature searches, summaries of NCCIH-funded research, fact sheets for patients, and more.  According to the article, “The evidence base on efficacy of music therapy for children with ASD consists of several studies and a recent Cochrane systematic review."

The  article can be found at:

AMTA has worked closely with NIH for many years and presented an historic research sharing event in April of 2014 where key NIH representatives were able to hear presentations from music therapists and explored new areas of research, expectations from the NIH community, and next steps in research and collaboration.  We hope that these relationships will continue to produce more recognition like the NCCIH Clinical Digest feature in the future.
