When words fail, grieving children can find an outlet in music. That’s the success story for many foster youth and their families at Los Angeles-based mental health agency, Hathaway-Sycamores, who have been impacted by the musical therapy of Arvis Jones. Jones, the Assistant Director of the Center for Grief and Loss for Children is part of a growing professional field that taps into the restorative power of music to help traumatized children heal. To help them cope with loss, she reaches out to children and families with a bin of unorthodox tools like keyboards, claves, jingle sticks, tambourines, djembe and tubano drums.
