A variety of music therapy interventions are utilized to support a range of treatment goals for this client population. This report describes and discusses such work that is in the early stages of development of 3 NICUs in European countries: Estonia, Greece and Wales. The development and content of the interventions in each NICU is described, with recommendations made toward the sustainability and future growth of each program.
