2019-09-17 02:47:42 | BioPortfolio


This study compares the efficacy of music therapy associated with standard care versus the standard care alone on the psychological pain in suicidal patients.


Music therapy consists of using the Music Care tool. Each patient randomized in the music therapy arm should perform 4 music therapy sessions of 30 minutes on 48h.

Before and after each music therapy sessions, the psychological pain will be measured by the analogical visual scale.

Standard care consists of a medical and paramedical interview lasting 20-30 minutes. At the end of the interview, a drug treatment (BZD anxiolytic and/or hypnotic) is prescribed and the patient is hospitalized. During hospitalization, patient is regularly interviewed in order to evaluate his psychological status.
