editorial Your Access to Latest Trends and Practices As is evident by this fifth issue, imagine continues to be your access to the latest trends and practices in early childhood music therapy. The focus of imagine 2014 is on family-centered practice – a trend taking hold in music therapy circles worldwide. While many practitioners in the USA already embrace and implement key elements of family-centered practice in their music therapy sessions, researchers are now looking into the measured benefits it oers. This issue also presents research and practice articles as well as a podcast on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a continuing topic of interest among readers. Several colleagues also address parent-child attachment and emotion regulation. Furthermore, cultural sensitivity is examined as an all-time popular topic among those gathered at the 14. World Congress of Music Therapy in Vienna/Krems, Austria this year. Whether you are a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner, imagine has it all. This issue features 44 text-based articles plus 15 videos, 13 audio files, 9 audio podcasts, 4 photo stories, and numerous hyperlinks that invite additional exploration. Last year, imagine reached out to 1.15 million potential readers via email and social media. How many readers will our imagine authors reach this year?
