In this insightful book, Oldfield and Carr draw together persuasive arguments for combining aspects of music therapy and dramatherapy, whilst retaining the unique facets of these two modalities. Building on the many links between music and drama and the compatibility between the two disciplines, the book demonstrates ways in which the two therapies can be brought together to create a fresh, engaging arts therapy greater than the sum of its parts. This approach enriches the practice of professionals working to support people with special needs, people recovering from trauma and social deprivation and a wide range of other service users. Despite the significant overlap in music therapy and dramatherapy techniques, this is the first book to directly explore the vast potential of the two disciplines being brought together. Covering a range of different perspectives and practice contexts, this book demonstrates just how much the professions can offer each other both from a clinical perspective and from the point of view of training therapists.

Moving beyond progress reports, clinical assessments and practical goals, this book brings to life the reflective aspects of music therapy. The result of a collaboration between New Zealand music therapists, it invites the reader to share their encounters in the therapy room through a wide variety of writings, including short stories, poetry and personal reflections. It also contains contributions by music therapy clients, which form a rare and innovative addition to this book. Grounded in clinical practice, each piece of writing starts from the lived experience in the therapy room and conveys something of the ineffable elements of music therapy. Thoughtful, touching and featuring beautiful illustrations, this book will appeal to anyone looking for a more personal account of music therapy practice, including practitioners, clients and students.

Based on the findings of members of the International Music Therapy Assessment Consortium, this anthology collects the latest research and clinical practice methods about music therapy assessment. Looking at the available assessment tools holistically, the book covers the major assessment models currently used in clinical practice, and details each model’s setting and motivation, theoretical background, development, and how to implement them in a clinical setting.

As perspectives on private art therapy practice evolve, this book provides an overview of the range of approaches, clinical settings, ethical issues and professional considerations when working outside of the formal structures of publicly-funded services. An essential guide for students and experienced practitioners moving into private practice, it considers the impact of a private context on theory, practice and research. The book features contributions from therapists with extensive experience in both private practice and public services and gives advice on potential difficulties, such as managing relationships with fee-paying clients, self-promotion and maintaining boundaries when practising from home.

When you think of arts therapy, you don’t often associate the practice with profit; however, ethical economic models are essential in allowing clients the most access to arts therapy services. Art therapists don’t generally have formal training in economics, which can be challenging when developing their professional services. This book offers the fundamentals of micro and macro economics that apply to creating a sustainable and ethical business model that supports the development of the arts therapies profession worldwide. Through economic theory and international case studies, the authors consider the business side of therapeutic arts service with recommendations for developing an ethical and sustainable practice. With key insights and informative examples, this book will serve as a guide for small business owners looking to develop their arts therapy practice.

Consideration of relevant aspects of Bowlby’s theories will also be included. Knowledge of these theories of child development helps to support understanding of the music therapy process, making this book vital reading for both students and practitioners of music therapy.
