'The contributions of this book are very important for us as health carers to increase our knowledge of this form of therapy, so that we can understand its power and limits. It is a book about music therapy where clinical applications are successfully documented in a very professional and clear way. The quality of the contributions proves that music therapy has a legitimate and due place in the spectrum of psychotherapeutic interventions in psychiatric clinical practice.'
– From the Foreword by Jozef Peuskens

Clinical Applications of Music Therapy in Psychiatry provides valuable insight into the work of professional music therapists in their clinical practice. The contributors, who are all internationally-renowned music therapists, discuss work with a diverse range of clients, including those suffering from Alzheimer's, anorexia nervosa, schizophrenia, psychosis, personality disorder, anxiety and psychosomatic disorder. Their chapters develop psychotherapeutic theory alongside music therapy practice, and are intended to be read by the psychiatric professions as well as music therapists, reflecting the medical establishment's growing receptivity to music therapy.
