MUSIC THERAPY, WINNICOTT AND THE SCHOOL OF OBJECT RELATIONS Alison Levinge 2015 | 176pp | £19.99 | $34.95 pb-9781849055765 | eBook-9781784500191
Child development theory (DWWinnicott, JBowlby, APhillips and KBollas) as it applies to music therapy practice.
This book explores how the work of key child development theorists informs music therapy practice with children and families. Focusing primarily on the theoretical thinking and understanding of the paediatrician and psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, Alison Levinge highlights how his theories resonate with the central aspects of music therapy. Central to the book are Winnicott’s ideas on play and an exploration of his understanding of the psychological processes of ‘holding’. Winnicott’s theories are given greater depth and understanding by referencing the writings of Adam Phillips and Christopher Bollas. 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. In this important book Alison Levinge provides some powerful insights, from her perspective as a music therapist, into the work of one the 20th century’s most innovative psychoanalysts. Of particular value to music therapists will be her understanding of Winnicott’s recognition of the centrality of unspoken experience to the therapeutic process, and her emphasis on the importance of ‘play’, in every sense. This book will not only be a resource for students of music therapy: it will be something for all music therapists to return to throughout professional life.’ Eleanor Richards, Senior Lecturer in Music Therapy, Anglia Ruskin University, UK

This passionate book offers numerous creative and playful practices and innovative educational interventions for all those working with children in groups - be that teachers, mental health practitioners and allied professionals.

Revealing study on how to use play and arts therapies with Buddhist psychotherapy to help clients heal and achieve greater emotional wellbeing. Many in the field of therapy are arriving at the realisation that healing needs to bring together not only our social, emotional, physical and intellectual sides but also our spiritual beings. Play in its many manifestations of art, drama, movement, and ritual can allow us to reach a level of emotional openness, interconnectedness and fundamental happiness. This book describes personal accounts of healing through Buddhist psychotherapy and the arts therapies, in particular, play and dramatherapy to showcase highly effective, multi-dimensional therapeutic techniques. The Core Process, Buddhist-oriented approach to psychotherapy is integrated with creative arts therapy to explore play as a gateway to our deeper Being or Buddha Nature. Play is introduced as a crucial and intrinsic therapeutic tool that not only pertains to childhood but extends throughout the life cycle and manifests as drama, art, sculpture, music, dance, story, ritual. This book will be an eye-opening resource for arts therapists, counsellors and psychotherapists and those interested in the fields of therapy and spirituality, especially Buddhism.

How music and language ‘work’ as communication and how music can support learning and language development.
Children with autism often have an intense natural musicality. This book explains how music and language ‘work’ as systems of communication, and why music holds such a fascination for many young people on the autism spectrum. There are strategies for showing how music can be used to support language development and even substitute for verbal communication. Exploring the progression from a young child’s intuitive engagement with music, to using it as a scaffold for communication, socialisation and understanding, the book illustrates, through the use of detailed case studies, how music nurtures a sense of self and provides a positive outlet to express inner thoughts and feelings without resorting to challenging or even destructive behaviours. Presenting an innovative approach to the use of music with people on the autism spectrum, this book will be a fascinating resource for speech and language therapists, music therapists, occupational therapists, teachers, teaching assistants, educational psychologists, carers and parents of people with autism.

A good practice guide to ensuring the best possible care for people with dementia at the end of life. People with dementia need increasingly specialised support as they approach the end of life, and so too do their families and the professionals working with them. This book describes not only what can be done to ensure maximum quality of life for those in the final stages of the illness, but also how best to support those involved in caring for them. Emphasising the importance of being attuned to the experiences and needs of the person with dementia, the authors explain why and how they should be included in decisions relating to their end of life care. Practical strategies for ensuring physical and emotional wellbeing are provided, drawing on useful examples from practice and providing solutions to potential challenges that carers and family members will face. Dilemmas surrounding end of life care are explored in detail, including the moral dilemma of medical intervention, and the authors suggest ways of supporting family members through the process in terms of providing information, helping them adjust to change and loss, and involving them in their relative’s care, and at how care staff can be supported through appropriate education and training, team building and information-giving. This is an essential resource for anyone who wishes to provide compassionate, person-centred care for a person with dementia as they approach the end of life, including care staff, nurses, social workers and related professionals.

The authors explore the concept of creativity - what exactly it is, its particular relevance for people with dementia and how to get into the creative ‘flow’. They introduce a range of creative art forms, including poetry and story-telling, collage, drama, music-making, photography, textiles and working with wood and metal, and suggest possibilities for employing them in a range of settings, and with people of all abilities. Consideration is given to the practicalities of facilitating such creative work, including how to organise and run sessions, how to involve people with dementia and their carers, and how to reflect upon the experience. Practice examples are included throughout the book, as well as the comments and observations of people with dementia, and many examples of the artwork and poetry the authors have created with people with dementia over the years.
Enrich the lives of people with dementia through the use of playfulness and creativity in dementia care. Establishing playfulness as an essential component of dementia care, this positive and uplifting book will be key in changing attitudes and providing ideas for new and valuable ways of interacting and being with individuals with the condition.
John Killick explores the nature of playfulness and the many ways in which it can enrich the lives of people with dementia, including as a means of maintaining relationships and communication, supporting communication and generally lifting the spirits. Specific approaches already in existence are described, including improvised drama, clowning and laughter yoga, and a chapter on the playful approach to art and craft activities is also included. Personal accounts of playfulness by individuals with dementia, relatives and an actor with a decade’s experience of using playful approaches with people with dementia offer rich first-hand insights into its transformative potential. Throughout the book, the importance of spontaneity and of being with the person with dementia in the present moment is emphasised, and the reader is encouraged to develop a playful mindset. Offering a fresh and perhaps unexpected perspective, this book is essential reading for dementia care practitioners and managers, activity coordinators, therapists, people with dementia and their relatives, and anyone else concerned with the wellbeing of those with the condition.

Using material from artists and therapists working in the field, the varying demands of inpatient, outpatient and home care are described, as well as the processes of bereavement, how to handle the practicalities of loss and the help that therapists can give at this stage. How artists and therapists with experience of working at the end of life can be involved in other areas of care such as supporting older people in care homes and those living with dementia is also discussed. Full of professional advice and career guidance, this book will be an invaluable tool for those working with patients nearing the end of life and those considering working in this area, as well as students in training.

A discussion of the economics and ethics of therapeutic practice and how to develop a sustainable business model in the therapeutic profession. When you think of therapy, you don’t often associate the practice with profit; however, ethical economic models are essential in allowing clients the most access to therapy services. 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 therapeutic profession worldwide. Through economic theory and international case studies, the authors consider the business side of therapeutic 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 therapeutic practice.
EXAMINING OUTSIDER ART AND ART THERAPY SHARED HISTORIES AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES Rachel Cohen JUN 2017 | 208pp | £19.99 | $29.95 pb-9781785927393 |
First book to explore the intersection of outsider art and art therapy. Outsider art, traditionally the work of psychiatric patients, offenders and minority groups, and art therapy have shared histories of art created in psychiatric care. As the two fields grow, this book reveals the current issues faced by both disciplines and traces their shared histories to help them build clearer and more coherent identities. More often than not, the history of art therapy has been tied to psychological and psychiatric roots, which has led to problems in defining the field and forced boundaries between what is considered ‘art’ and what is considered ‘art therapy’. Similarly, the name and identity of outsider art is constantly debated. By viewing art therapy and outsider art through their shared histories, this book helps to alleviate the challenges and issues of definition faced by the fields today.

Drawing on real-life examples throughout, the book offers you the means to improve your understanding of not only your own emotions and emotional actions, but those of others. The book will be immensely useful not only to people who feel things strongly, but to those who have trouble understanding or interpreting emotions and how to respond to the feelings they provoke. In exemplarily clear and easy-to-read language, without therapeutic clichés, Ilse Sand takes readers through a cleansing bath for emotional mental hygiene.The book is highly recommended.’ Bent Falk, psychotherapist MPF, M.Th.

Helps practitioners to identify and manage shame in the client and themselves.
Counselling Skills for Working with Shame helps professionals to understand and identify shame and to build shame resilience in both the client and themselves.
Shame is ubiquitous in counselling where there is an increased vulnerability and risk of exposure to shame. While many clients experience feelings of shame, it is often overlooked in the therapeutic process and as a
result can be left untreated. It is particularly pertinent when working with clients who have experienced trauma, domestic or complex abuse, or who struggle with addiction, compulsion and sexual behaviours. Written in an accessible style, this is a hands-on, skills-based guide which helps practitioners to identify what elicits, evokes or triggers shame. It gives a general introduction to the nature of shame in both client and counsellor and how these become entwined in the therapeutic relationship. It focuses on increasing awareness of shame and how to release it in order to build shame resilience. With points for reflection, helpful exercises, top tips, reminders and suggestions for how to work with clients, this is a highly practical guide for counsellors, therapists, mental health practitioners, nurses, social workers, educators, human resources, trainee counsellors and students.
