Sample of 90 subjects between 6 and 18 years old with significant PTSD symptoms will be randomly assigned to a control group or the treatment receiving 10 weeks of group music therapy. Pre- and post-test measures from the Impact of Events Scales-Revised (IES-R) and Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI - II) will assess PTSD symptoms. Data will be analyzed with an ANOVA.
