“Brace for Impact: A Case for Emotional Fluidity” eBook summarizes findings of quantitative and qualitative research studies at the university student health center. The literature review includes prior MEE Studies: exploratory study of audience participants (n = 212, 1991-93); and the preliminary study with oncology patients (1994).
These two prior studies supported further investigation of the “MEE” Concert’s effect with a younger generation. Over a ten-year period, staff at University of Nevada Las Vegas’ Student Health Center reviewed positive reactions from Pinkerton’s presentations for possible application to various UNLV departments. Stress was recognized as manifesting emotional challenges for college students, which could be alleviated by employing the “MEE Concert.” Student Health Center subjects (n=27) were identified and tested to evaluate the benefits of listening to the “MEE Concert.” Pre-post assessments were administered to measure quantitative and qualitative data. Results yielded a significant reduction in “unsettledness.”
The Music Medicine protocol is published with one case study:
During 2018 in one residential addiction treatment center, 94% of those surveyed (n=603 patients) reported positive effects improving Emotional Intelligence after experiencing the same 30-minute Music Medicine Pill™ administered by Judith Pinkerton. Over a seven year period of time, Judith treated more than 11,000 patients utilizing the Music Medicine protocol as foundational to music therapy services, provided in residential addiction treatment centers where she documented more than 35,000 responses.
