The manual uses helpful case studies to illustrate how assessments are made and treatments are chosen, and the appendices provide useful clinical forms and questionnaires for therapists to use with patients.Multimodal Psychiatric Music Therapy for Adults, Adolescents, and Children is an invaluable learning resource for music therapy students and interns, and a handy reference for practitioners.
'This manual has proved to be invaluable to my music therapy clinical students, interns, and professional colleagues working in the mental health arena. It's wonderful to have a "state of the best practice" manual of music therapists working in mental health settings--this resource enriches our profession.'- Robert Groene, Director of Music Therapy, University of Missouri, MO'A major strength is that the clinical techniques included in the manual are those submitted via survey and questionnaire by Clinical Training Directors (CTDs) across the country. These are many of the same CTDs with whom interns will be working and learning.'- Music Therapy Perspectives
