Grief and loss is an inevitable experience for most people. One coping strategy is to engage in songwriting as music therapy. This can be done in a formal setting with a licensed music therapist or in an informal setting through self-motivated songwriting. Songwriting in response to grief and loss can have a significant impact on one's healing process.
