ORU Opens Free Music Therapy Clinic

Music TherapyOral Roberts University opened a new Music Therapy Clinic on Tuesday, August 18, 2015. The clinic is dedicated to providing free, high-quality music therapy services to the local community.

Students in the music therapy program will gain professional experience evaluating and treating patients in the clinic, while being supervised by two board certified music therapists, Hayoung Lim and Hyun-Jung Lee.

Lim worked as director of graduate studies of music therapy at Sam Houston State University in Texas. She is a board certified neurologic music therapist (NMT Fellow) and belongs to the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). Her clinical work includes geriatrics, psychiatrics, special education, developmental disabilities and much more.

Jung Lee, Clinical Professor of Music Therapy, will also supervise the clinic. Lee is a certified musical therapist (NMT). She has provided musical therapy for children with developmental disorders for six years, including work in ADHD, epilepsy and Autism-spectrum disorders.

The Music Therapy program at Oral Roberts University is built upon an integrated music therapy clinical program of Cognitive-Behavioral Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT). The integrated program develops clinical knowledge and treatment based on analysis of individuals’ cognitive, speech & language, social/emotional (psychological), and physical behaviors, and prepares music therapy students to utilize scientific evidence regarding human perception and the production of music to treat disorders of the human nervous system.

The clinic is located in CityPlex Towers, Suite 124. Those interested in participating may call 918-495-8040 or email musictherapy@oru.edu.
