Description - Art and Music: Therapy and Research by Andrea Gilroy
It is difficult to conduct research in psychotherapy, as the scientific method preferred by academic research is not neccessarily appropriate when it comes to assessing what happens in therapy. Art therapists and music therapists have traditionally worked side by side and both work in a predominantly non-verbal medium. As their respective professions grow to maturity, they have increasingly begun to develop their own research methods and tools.;This edited collection of 16 case studies is structured around the research problems common to both professions and recurring questions become apparent in the many different contexts described by each contributor. These common themes are drawn together by the editors to enable the reader to take a critical look at what is described, within an informed context. There are many important research questions for each profession to address, but there are a variety of research methodologies available. By presenting original work in a structured way, the book offers ideas and ways forward for others practising in the field of the arts therapies who are considering embarking on research projects.
