There is a rapidly emerging and developing area of music therapy practice that uses electronic music technologies in a range of therapeutic and clinical settings to help clients with complex needs. This edited volume explains cutting edge technologies and how to apply these tools in practice. With contributions from leading experts in the field, the book takes the reader through the equipment that is available including computer-based software; electronic devices which produce musical sounds with minimal movement or skill; assistive devices such as switches and sensors; and recording and listening equipment. Clinical case studies are then offered that show these technologies being used successfully with a broad range of child and adult populations, including those with visual impairments, autism spectrum disorders, medical needs, physical challenges, and mental health issues, and within a variety of settings, including a neonatal intensive care unit, schools, hospital environments, and palliative care settings. The final section looks toward the future and examines philosophical and theoretical perspectives on the use of technology and its relationship to aesthetics, gender and identity. This book will be a key resource for all music therapists, special needs educators, and professionals from the field of assistive technology, as well as allied health professionals such as occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.

Assistive Technology Assessment Handbook, Second Edition, proposes an international ideal model for the assistive technology assessment process, outlining how this model can be applied in practice to re-conceptualize the phases of an assistive technology delivery system according to the biopsychosocial model of disability. The model provides reference guidelines for evidence-based practice, guiding both public and private centers that wish to compare, evaluate, and improve their ability to match a person with the correct technology model. This second edition also offers a contribution to the Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology (GATE) initiative, whose activities are strongly focused on the assistive products service delivery model. Organized into three parts, the handbook: gives readers a toolkit for performing assessments; describes the roles of the assessment team members, among them the new profession of psychotechnologist; and reviews technologies for rehabilitation and independent living, including brain–computer interfaces, exoskeletons, and technologies for music therapy. Edited by Stefano Federici and Marcia J. Scherer, this cross-cultural handbook includes contributions from leading experts across five continents, offering a framework for future practice and research.

Music therapy is recognised as being applicable to a wide range of healthcare and social contexts. Since the first edition of Music Therapy: An art beyond words, it has extended into areas of general medicine, mainstream education and community practice. This new edition revises the historical and theoretical perspectives and recognises the growing evidence and research base in contemporary music therapy. Leslie Bunt and Brynjulf Stige document the historical evolution of music therapy and place the practice within seven current perspectives: medical, behavioural, psychoanalytical, humanistic, transpersonal, culture-centred and music-centred. No single perspective, individual or group approach is privileged, although the focus on the use of sounds and music within therapeutic relationships remains central. Four chapters relate to areas of contemporary practice across different stages of the lifespan: child health, adolescent health, adult health and older adult health. All include case narratives and detailed examples underpinned by selected theoretical and research perspectives. The final two chapters of the book reflect on the evolution of the profession as a community resource and the emergence of music therapy as an academic discipline in its own right. A concise introduction to the current practice of music therapy around the world, Music Therapy: An art beyond words is an invaluable resource for professionals in music therapy and music education, those working in the psychological therapies, social work and other caring professions, and students at all levels.

In recent decades, both medical humanities and medical history have emerged as rich and varied sub-disciplines. Medicine, Health and the Arts is a collection of specially commissioned essays designed to bring together different approaches to these complex fields. Written by a selection of established and emerging scholars, this volume embraces a breadth and range of methodological approaches to highlight not only developments in well-established areas of debate, but also newly emerging areas of investigation, new methodological approaches to the medical humanities and the value of the humanities in medical education. Divided into five sections, this text begins by offering an overview and analysis of the British and North American context. It then addresses in-depth the historical and contemporary relationship between visual art, literature and writing, performance and music. There are three chapters on each art form, which consider how history can illuminate current challenges and potential future directions. Each section contains an introductory overview, addressing broad themes and methodological concerns; a case study of the impact of medicine, health and well-being on an art form; and a case study of the impact of that art form on medicine, health and wellbeing. The underlining theme of the book is that the relationship between medicine, health and the arts can only be understood by examining the reciprocal relationship and processes of exchange between them. This volume promises to be a welcome and refreshing addition to the developing field of medical humanities. Both informative and thought provoking, it will be important reading for students, academics and practitioners in the medical humanities and arts in health, as well as health professionals, and all scholars and practitioners interested in the questions and debates surrounding medicine, health and the arts.

English summary: Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) is a integrative and psychodynamic psychotherapy developed by Dr. Helen Bonny in den late sixties of the last century. GIM works with classical music also integrating spiritual and transpersonal dimensions. GIM is taught and implemented worldwide. In contrast to other receptive forms of music therapy where the verbal exchange of the music experience takes place after having listened to the music, the specificity of GIM is the continuing dialog between the therapist and the client while listening in an altered state of consciousness.During his "music journey" the client stays in the here and now and is alive to the importance of confronting his/her conflicts by conducting him/herself through the imagery with help of the music and the verbal interventions of the therapist (instead of reporting his/her experiences afterwards). This volume presents new developments in GIM and methods of music imagery in German speaking countries and invites to discuss them. The reader is encouraged to deal with different themes and controversial issues like f. ex. how GIM therapists with different therapeutic backgrounds (depth psychological, transpersonal, systemic, etc.) explain and treat psychological disorders with GIM; how can GIM support mentalization; which role does spirituality play as psychotherapy or in psychotherapy; or in general: which influence has the digital age on therapeutic values. The authors investigate when, for whom and why the Bonny Method of GIM or modified forms of GIM and music imagery are indicated. 14 chapters written by 14 authors concentrate on concepts, clinical applications and training.

Im Gegensatz zu anderen musikimaginativen Methoden der Musikpsychotherapie, bei denen das Erleben erst nach dem Horen mitgeteilt wird, ist das Spezifische dieser Methode der Dialog zwischen Patient und Therapeut wahrend des Musikerlebens in einem veranderten Bewusstseinszustand. Dadurch bleibt der Patient auf seiner "Musikreise" im Hier und Jetzt und kann sich seinen in den Imaginationen verschlusselt auftauchenden Konflikten mit Hilfe der Musik und der verbalen Interventionen des Therapeuten handelnd stellen anstatt nur uber sie zu reden. Mit dem vorliegenden Buch werden die Grundlagen von GIM sowie weitere musikimaginative Methoden an praktischen Beispielen vertieft bzw. modifiziert und vor dem Hintergrund der heutigen Realitaten auch kritisch hinterfragt und zur Diskussion gestellt. Der Leser wird angeregt, sich mit verschiedenen Themen und Therapieverstandnissen auseinander zu setzen, z.B. welchen Einfluss das digitale Zeitalters auf therapeutische Wertvorstellungen haben konnte; wie GIM TherapeutInnen verschiedener Orientierung (z.B. tiefenpsychologisch, transpersonal, systemisch, etc.) Storungs- und Krankheitsbildern mit GIM begrunden und behandeln; welche Rolle Spiritualitat als Psychotherapie oder in der Psychotherapie spie

Mit ihrem grundlegenden Werk zur störungsspezifischen Indikation von Musiktherapie in der Behandlung von Kindern und Jugendlichen schließen die Autoren theoretisch zu anderen Verfahren auf und bieten dem Praktiker ein Manual für die tägliche Arbeit. Isabelle Frohne-Hagemann und Heino Pleß-Adamczyk kommt das Verdienst zu, für die Musiktherapie mit Kindern und Jugendlichen mit diesem Band die Grundlagen für störungsspezifische Indikationen zu liefern, wie sie inzwischen von Psychotherapieverfahren gefordert werden. Die Autoren bedienen sich einer integrativen Sichtweise, die die spezifisch musiktherapeutische Diagnostik vor dem Hintergrund verschiedener Theoriemodelle anderer Verfahren anschaulich macht. Das abschließende Manual gibt einen praxisbezogenen Überblick zu den relevanten Störungsbildern nach ICD-10 und vermittelt exemplarisch, welche beziehungsfördernden Funktionen Musik bei spezifischen Symptomatiken in der musiktherapeutischen Behandlung haben kann.
