Recent Comments "Introduction to Approaches in Music Therapy"

Music therapists and music therapy students can learn a lot from this simple introduction to a wide variety of perspectives Coming from a school whose focus is on Neurologic Music Therapy, I appreciated gaining some understanding into other approaches that at first glance appear radically different, such as Psychodynamic Approach and Nordoff Robbins As it turns out, finding common grounds and similarities has been a huge help for my learning process.

Referenced this book initially for information about educational Orff Dalcroze and medical NMT, biomedical model, MT in wellness models that influence music therapy.Now returning to it for info on psychodynamic models GIM, Bonny Method general psychodynamic model.

As a published book used for Music Therapy board exam and University coursework, this book is lacking too much editing, to the point that makes the material confusing.
