This book presents 42 case histories, each describing the process of music therapy from beginning to end. The cases include children, adolescents, and adults receiving individual and group therapy in psychiatric, medical, educational or community settings. With authors from nine countries, the book details a broad spectrum of approaches and techniques in music therapy. It can be used as a reference, a textbook for training students, or as an introduction to the field. The essence of music therapy is captured, not in the single voice of one therapist but in a resounding chorus of many. It does this by telling the moving stories of people from around the world who have been helped through music therapy and the relationships developed with these exceptional music therapists.
