Music Therapy for Multisensory and Body Awareness in Children and Adults with Severe to Profound Multiple Disabilities

The MuSense Manual

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

This book offers the practical, ready-to-use MuSense program. Originally designed for music therapists working with individuals with profound multiple disabilities, the MuSense program provides comprehensive guidance to music therapists on how to effectively work with individuals whose needs can be extremely difficult to meet.

Containing a robust, structured, evidence-based protocol of music therapy, and supported by case studies throughout, this book is also an essential resource in treatment planning for other diverse populations needing to develop enhanced body and sensory awareness.

Roberta S. Adler and Olga V. Samsonova-Jellison are board-certified music therapists, specializing in work with profound multiple disabilites.
