Clinical BOPulations

Introducing music therapists to new bops and new bops to music therapy

About the show

Clinical BOPulation is a music therapy podcast hosted by a collective of music therapists and music therapy educators. Every other week, these hosts introduce a singer/songwriter and explore how their music can be utilized therapeutically. Following a preview of the week's featured BOP, each host will describe music therapy interventions that can be created as well as populations that would benefit from the track.
