This is the first of its kind, and a book that will be welcomed by professionals and students alike. In it, an experienced music therapist presents his approach to group work through detailed transcripts of actual sessions along with frank discussions of his thoughts and feelings while leading each group. The book begins with an introduction to the nature of music therapy, music, and group work. The author then presents four fascinating group vignettes, each detailing an innovative approach that he has developed, including: 1) Stories, Myths and Music; 2) Music and Imagery; 3) A Recovery Model and 4) Words and Music in Song.
