Sep 03, Taylor rated it it was amazing. As a new and current student to the field of Music Therapy I could not believe how truly inspiring this field is or could be for so many people.

His chapter on how we define Music Therapy in particular was very interesting when he said there was not one way but many ways to define it. I would recommend this book to anyone considering, going into, or currently working with music therapy. Mar 25, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: music-therapy.

Music therapy is beauty-centered Thus, the very point of listening to or creating music as a therapeutic endeavor is to experience the beauty and meaning of life, and in the process, to learn how to work through the problems and challenges that are an integral part of the life experience. Just as music presents tension and conflict, and just as it moves toward change and resolution, so Music therapy is beauty-centered Just as music presents tension and conflict, and just as it moves toward change and resolution, so does the human being work to become whole and thereby live life more fully.

And when this journey toward wholeness takes place within the exquisiteness of an art form, that is within an aesthetic context - the journey is made that much more poignant, potent, and memorable. Thus, music and its basic structural components sound, vibrations are inherently healing to all living things.

Music Therapy

Music therapy is the intentional use of music and musical experiences by a professional music therapist to enrich human life; alleviate human suffering; enhance physical, cognitive, emotional, and social functioning; and promote processes of normal development and self-actualization. Music therapists work with individuals with and without disabilities, and they work with individuals in private sessions, small groups, and community contexts. Music therapy is practiced globally with professional associations devoted to its advancement in over 40 countries. In many of the countries with a professional infrastructure devoted to music therapy, music therapists are eligible to receive licenses and certifications that are recognized by various governmental agencies. For example, in the USA, music therapists can earn board certification by passing a national certifying examination and obtain various licenses as counselors and psychotherapists on a state-by-state basis.

Defining Music Therapy

Defining Music Therapy. Kenneth E. The third edition of this book is the culmination of a 25 year project aimed at conceptualizing music therapy in a critically inclusive and integrative way. To be critically inclusive, the definition must provide an umbrella that embraces all professional practices and concepts that have been deemed viable in the refereed literature, while also excluding those concepts and practices: that do not rely on music; that occur outside of a professional therapist-client relationship; and that are not concerned with addressing the client's health. To be integrative, the definition must offer myriad options for using music to address the client's health concerns--as indicated by client need rather than therapist orientation. The resulting definition is a working and provisional one, based on over existing definitions. It has been co-constructed by the author who is situated in American music therapy , experienced colleagues, and authors and associations around the world who have crafted their own definition of music therapy.
