Overview

The value of music therapy in neurological rehabilitation is increasingly recognised and this practical manual provides comprehensive guidance for clinicians on the application of music therapy methods in neurorehabilitation.

Felicity Baker and Jeanette Tamplin combine research findings with their own clinical experience and present step-by-step instructions and guidelines on how to implement music therapy techniques for a range of therapeutic needs. Photographs clearly illustrate interventions for physical rehabilitation, for example through the use of musical instruments to encourage targeted movement. The chapter on cognitive rehabilitation includes resources and lists suitable songs for use in immediate memory or abstract thinking tasks, among others. In her chapter on paediatric patients, Jeanette Kennelly demonstrates how procedures can be adapted for working clinically with children. A comprehensive list of terminology commonly used in neurological rehabilitation is also included.

Music Therapy Methods in Neurorehabilitation will prove an invaluable reference book for music therapy clinicians and students. It is also suitable for work with other populations, in particular for work in special education.
