Evidence-based change is central to many recent developments in the NHS. This book brings together practical and personal experiences from a wide range of externally evaluated healthcare projects. It demonstrates how to facilitate and promote evidence-based change by drawing on realistic advice on what is, and is not, effective. It enables readers to benefit from lessons learned and provides a comprehensive insight into implementing changes based on research evidence, across broad range of settings in the NHS. 'An important book. It has many exciting insights, enjoy it.' Jenny Simpson in the Foreword 'A unique collection. There are some brave admissions and this is probably the best attempt yet to capture the nitty-gritty of the evidence-into-practice agenda in UK healthcare. I hope you find it a gripping read'. Trisha Greenhalgh in the Foreword

"There has for some years now been a debate within the field of music therapy on the issue of music-centered therapy. This book relates to this discussion and presents a contribution. The thesis that is put forward is that a dialogical perspective may serve to frame such therapy. Or, rather, for music as therapy, which is the term that is used here. Some might want to claim that there is no such thing as music as therapy, that the only real therapy there is, is some already established mode of therapy in which music plays a subordinate part, music in therapy. In this book, the attempt is to show a different picture, one which includes also the possibility of music as therapy, that is to say, therapy based on qualities of the medium itself. A particularly much-debated issue has been whether verbal processing is necessary for actual therapy to take place. This book presents and discusses some of the crucial issues involved, and develops a theory to bring out potentials of an experiential, transformative music therapy, in which verbal processing, talking cure style, is not necessarily incorporated. The models related to, and exemplified through vignettes from practice, are mostly improvisational, but the perspective drawn is applied to some extent also to other modalities, such as community-oriented practices and receptive, listening-based music therapy."--Publisher's website.

This practical book describes the specific use of receptive (listening) methods and techniques in music therapy clinical practice and research, including relaxation with music for children and adults, the use of visualisation and imagery, music and collage, song-lyric discussion, vibroacoustic applications, music and movement techniques, and other forms of aesthetic listening to music. The authors explain these receptive methods of intervention using a format that enables practitioners to apply them in practice and make informed choices about music suitable for each of the different techniques. Protocols are described step-by-step, with reference to the necessary environment, conditions, skills and appropriate musical material. Receptive Methods in Music Therapy will prove indispensable to music therapy students, practitioners, educators and researchers.

Although listening to music in music therapy has a much longer tradition than active music therapy, receptive music therapy in European countries has been strongly neglected for many years. The German edition of this book, published in 2004, is the first to present the most important methods of receptive music therapy in one volume. This volume presents the English edition. 18 well-known European authors present forms of receptive music therapy, which focus on both theoretical and practical aspects. The spectrum of methods and clinical applications is broad: receptive music therapy as or in psychotherapy (f. ex. Guided Imagery and Music, Regulative Music Therapy, Integrative Music Therapy), as Sound Guided Trance, In Depth Relaxation Therapy, in Anthroposophic Music Therapy, etc. Various case studies of adolescent and adult patients illustrate how to work in different clinical contexts. Theoretical questions are discussed concerning topics such as music and (alterated states of) consciousness, music and emotion, music and imagery, music and developmental relationships and music and earliest childhood. This volume provides an extensive overview of Receptive Music Therapy in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Luxembourg.

Music in Groups happens all the time: in the street, the classroom, in music colleges, community centres, hospitals, prisons, churches and concert halls; at raves, weddings, music festivals, public ceremonies, music therapy sessions, group music lessons, concerts and rehearsals. Some group musicking seems to 'work' (and play) better than others; some sessions feel exhausting even if things are going well; and at other times, we can't begin to explain the complex musical and relational textures of group music work to funders, employers, friends, colleagues, or line managers. In this book, music therapist Mercédès Pavlicevic develops a broad-based discourse to describe, analyse and guide the practice of group musicking, drawing on her own extensive experience. The text is illustrated with vignettes drawn from a range of formal and informal settings that include spontaneous public occasions, collective rituals, special and mainstream education, music therapy, the concert hall, the music appreciation group and community work. This book makes you think about balancing individual and group needs, the development of group time, dealing with over-enthusiastic performers who 'hog' the group sound, undercurrents in music groups, the complications of dealing with institutions, preparing music listening programmes and buying instruments for group work - if you're involved in any kind of group musicking, this book is for you.

Not a how-to book. Quite the contrary, the book may challenge many Music Therapists and, to some, may even be seen as controversial. It should reveal fresh insights and creative potential for the 21st century.
