Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lisa Stepp, PhD, RN, APN, AOCN, CRNH (Private Practice)
Description: This book presents the work music therapists are doing in the area of palliative care. The focus is to enhance quality of living in a creative way.
Purpose: The editor describes this text first as an opportunity for individuals to share their music therapy experiences. Second, he hopes it will inspire others to share their stories. Third, it is meant to serve as a reminder that what contributes to our value are those feelings that are private and subtle, to which music therapy lends itself. The text meets these objectives.
Audience: The target audience is broad due to music's ability to touch all of us on many levels. This text is appropriate for all clinicians interested in music therapy and alternative ways to increase the quality of patients' lives. The editor is experienced in quality of life issues and is a leader in the field of palliative care.
Features: The book begins with a concise overview of music therapy in general. This is followed by discussions related to the use of music therapy in differing disease states and symptom control. The use of case studies and reports is very effective in communicating the role of music in the quality of life.
Assessment: As our clinical expertise increases and our technology moves us toward a new millenium, this text reminds us that our spiritual being can be lifted and quality of life increased with the simplest of interventions: music.
