Increasingly, music therapy is being practised as an intervention in medical and special educational settings. Focusing on clinical work with developmental disability, paediatrics and neurology, this book informs music therapists through case studies and analyses of theory and practice. The contributors are specialised music therapists who have worked with premature infants in intensive care, children with physical and learning disabilities, children with autism, emotionally disturbed teenagers and adults with neurological illnesses. They describe and explain the planning and evaluation of music therapy intervention, how music therapy can be used for assessing complex organic and emotional disabilities, and aspects of supervision for the professional music therapist. Reflecting on and developing the applications of music therapy, this collection will help establish effective therapy methods in which the creative use of music is employed by skilled and clinically experienced music therapists in a client-oriented interactive process.
