Sound therapy


An experience-oriented room design for anguished children and adolescents, with developmental disorders. Due to anxiety, the children are afraid to go to the toilet, a huge additional burden for the already challenged children. The task was to create anti-stressful and secondary environments that are part of the treatment without the child noticing it. The aim is to expand the children’s understanding of their own behaviors, thoughts and feelings, thus gaining greater integrity in their own lives. The result is based on sensory fieldwork, about how moods are created, communicated, and implemented. The target group has decided, through listening sessions which sounds they find most calming and anti stressful. The sound image has been partially cleaned for bright tones. Lower pitch in the soundscape, changed the pace and panned the sound to right and left. Likewise, the volume of the right and left panning is set to two different levels.
