More About This Textbook


"This book brings together the work of analytical music therapists from Europe and the United States of America. The book examines the origins and theory of Analytical Music Therapy (AMT) - including a contribution on the subject by the creator of AMT, Mary Priestley - before exploring its uses in various contexts. The central chapters cover the use of AMT in psychiatry, psychotherapy, counselling and rehabilitation, with adults and children and with nonverbal clients. A concluding section discusses aspects of the training of music therapy students." Written by leading analytical music therapists and edited by Johannes Th. Eschen, one of Mary Priestley's first AMT students, this book will be of interest to students and practitioners of all schools of music therapy and related disciplines.
