About This Book

The Handbook of Music Therapy takes the reader on a journey through the historical and contemporary landscape of the field of music therapy, updated with the latest practical, sociocultural and theoretical perspectives and developments in music therapy.

The second edition is divided into four parts: foundation and context; music therapy practice; learning and teaching; and professional life. This includes the trajectory of music therapy as a health, social and community-based discipline in the 21st century with an evolving evidence base that also acknowledges the growing edges in the field, such as perspectives around equity, inclusion and diversity. The editors have included practice-based chapters including contributions from music therapy specialists in the fields of autism, adult learning disability, forensic psychiatry, neurology, immigration and dementia. The second edition is thoroughly updated to showcase a series of new interviews with Elders in the music therapy field, a thoroughly revised first section of the book with new materials on values and principles, updated chapters on music therapy practice, online and print resources supporting music therapy practice including musical illustrations with new and revised examples, and an extensively revised final section with new chapters on professional life and research.

Illustrated with rich case studies and practical examples throughout, The Handbook of Music Therapy covers a variety of different theoretical and philosophical perspectives. It will be invaluable to music therapists (novices, students, professionals), other arts therapists and practitioners such as speech and language therapists, psychotherapists, teachers, community musicians, psychiatrists and social workers.
