The Power of Music as a Coping Skill

Matthew J. Bush, MSW, LSW has been very successful with his exciting and creative approach to therapy with children and adolescents. He takes popular music, something many children readily listen to and identify with, and helps them to use it as a coping skill and outlet for self-expression. Now his work is available for others to use and enjoy! In addition to looking for the utic messages in songs, Matt has created a the utic rock band, Freudian Slip, which focuses on music with the utic topics, in a form that children and adolescents can relate.

Matt has picked 14 of his favorite and most emotionally-charged songs that were written and inspired by his own personal experiences as well as those around him. These songs cover popular the utic topics including abuse, addiction, self-esteem, depression, and more.

Take Me Back is a song about anger management. The narrarator is going back and forth between being able to keep everything under control, and losing his temper.

Self-esteem represents how a person views him or herself. Our society has created standards that people feel they need to live up to, that we must dress a certain way, weigh a certain weight, and sometimes when we do not meet that standard, we develop a very low opinion of ourselves. The "beauty fools" in this song are people who are obsessed with beauty, and expect a certain level of physical beauty

Sadness is an emotion that we all feel. I believe that music is such a powerful form of expression. It allows us to identify with not only words in a song, but also the sound is heard as well. "Not All Right" is the saddest song that I have ever written. I remember writing it like it was yesterday. My grandmother, who was a very special person to me, had just died and I felt terrible. I picked up the guitar and a notepad, and an hour later felt so much better.
