Integrated Team Working describes collaborative multidisciplinary approaches and demonstrates that they can be valuable methods of music therapy intervention.

The authors explain the development of the music therapist's role within the multidisciplinary team and discuss the prevalence of collaborative partnerships between UK music therapists and other professionals such as occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, physiotherapists and other arts therapists. They examine the rationale, purpose and application of collaborative approaches and explore how and why music therapists adopt these approaches at differing levels. The book includes case studies from a variety of clinical settings, which illustrate the creative and innovative approaches used in transdisciplinary work in the evolving discipline of music therapy.

This theoretical and practical guide offers useful advice for music therapy students and professionals who wish to employ collaborative approaches. It will also be helpful for other professionals who are considering or already working together with music therapists.
