Music therapy
Acute and chronic psychological disorders, behavioural and personality disorders, eating disorders

Music therapy has been part of the offer for young patients at the CHUV since 2003.

At the Unité d’hospitalisation psychiatrique pour adolescents (UHPA), a music therapist has been supporting patients who spend several weeks in hospital since 2012. As part of the interdisciplinary team of doctors, psychologists and nursing specialists, he takes care of his patients in group or individual sessions. This approach contributes new elements to holistic understanding of the patients, helping them to recover their inner balance.
