Apport de la musicothérapie dans la prise en charge de l'anxiété

Abstract : Music therapy, historical and descriptive. Music therapy, which can be active or receptive, is a therapeutic modality that fits into the field of art therapy according to the teaching of AFRATAPEM. Anxiety, a cardinal symptom in medicine. Anxiety is a symptom very often encountered as much in psychiatry as in somatic medicine. The development of non-drug treatments can bring a real benefit in terms of public health. State of scientific research in 2018. Research on this topic is still in its infancy, with many pilot studies or small samples studies. In psychiatry, it seems necessary to offer at least 10 biweekly sessions of active music therapy to achieve efficacy on anxiety. In somatic medicine, there is a particular interest in receptive music therapy used in peri-interventional, with encouraging results. Conclusion: in 2018, the presumption of effectiveness of music-dominant art therapy for the management of anxiety, both in psychiatric and somatic medicine, seems consistent. The bulk of the research work remains to be done, with large-scale studies whose results will allow conclusions to be drawn with a high level of scientific proof, and perhaps to introduce this therapeutic modality into daily clinical practice.
