On the one hand, the subjects were interviewed to learn about the basic state of psychological crisis.

The means and methods of music therapy were used to intervene in the emotional state of the family members of the dying patients in the experimental group. The results of SAS pre-testing and post testing were statistically analyzed after the experiment.
