This research examines the significance of music therapy intervention on ego resilience in the emotional growth of teenagers, particularly in relation to anger management. Adolescents experience intense emotions, including anger, which can be challenging to manage. Effective emotion regulation is essential for healthy psychological functioning, and ego resilience plays a critical role in this process. This paper investigates the use of music therapy to support of ego resilience to the execution of personal development and use of adaptive anger management strategies in adolescence. Music therapy is proposed as a potential intervention to foster the growth of ego resilience and facilitate the acquisition of effective mood regulation strategies. The study examines the influence of music therapy on emotional regulation and presents evidence suggesting that receptive music therapy can bolster ego resilience in adolescents. The study aims to inform the design of proactive clinical strategies for adolescents and contribute to the knowledge base of music therapists by shedding light on the underlying mechanisms of ego resilience, positive human adaptation, and anger management. In conclusion, utilizing music therapy to foster ego resilience has the potential to be a valuable strategy in improving emotional regulation and mitigating aggressive behavior in adolescents.
