The central tenet of this innovative collection is that identity can be regarded as a performance, achieved through and in dialogue with others. The authors show that where neuro-degenerative disease restricts movement, communication and thought processes and impairs the sense of self, music therapy is an effective intervention in neurological rehabilitation, successfully restoring the performance of identity within which clients can recognise themselves. It can also aid rehabilitation of clients affected by dementia, traumatic brain injury, and multiple sclerosis, among other neuro-generative diseases. Music Therapy and Neurological Rehabilitation is an authoritative and comprehensive text that will be of interest to practising music therapists, students and academics in the field.

Musical improvisation is an increasingly recognised rehabilitative therapy for people who have experienced traumatic brain injury initially thought to be `unreachable' or `non-responsive'. Music Therapy and Traumatic Brain Injury demonstrates how music therapy can be used to attend to the holistic, rather than purely functional, needs of people affected by severe head trauma. Divided into three parts, the first section provides an introduction to the effects brain injury has on a person's livelihood. The second is a comprehensive review of available literature on the use of music therapy in the neurorehabilitative setting. The final section examines three case studies designed according to `therapeutic narrative analysis', an adaptive research method that uses interviewing and video, which focuses on the unique relationship between the professional and the patient. This book will give clinicians key notes for practice and a vision of the integral role music therapy can have in the successful rehabilitation from brain injury.

Dieser Band ist eine interdisziplin�re Ann�herung an den Pluralismus im Gesundheitswesen. Ein pluralistisches Gesundheitssystem integriert verschiedene Ans�tze als gleichwertige Bestandteile und �berwindet so die Dualit�t von der Schul- gegen�ber der Komplement�rmedizin – eine integrative Medizin entsteht. In neun Beitr�gen nehmen Experten unterschiedlicher Fachrichtungen Stellung zum medizinischen Pluralismus. Nebst Berichten aus den vier von der KIKOM vertretenen Methoden Anthroposophische Medizin, Klassische Hom�opathie, Neuraltherapie und Traditionelle Chinesische Medizin/Akupunktur sind solche aus der Ethik, der Ethnologie, der Pflege und der Forschung enthalten. Die Beitr�ge stammen aus der im Herbstsemester 2007 an der Universit�t Bern durchgef�hrten interdisziplin�ren Vortragsreihe.

Within the last decade music therapists have developed their work with people who have life-threatening illnesses and with those who are dying. This book presents some of that work from music therapists working in different approaches, in different countries, showing how valuable the inclusion of music therapy in palliative care has already proved to be. It is important for the dying, or those with terminal illness, that approaches are used which integrate the physical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of their being. The contributors to this book emphasize the importance of working not only with the patient but with the ward situation, friends and family members. By offering patients the chance to be creative they become something other than patients - they become expressive beings, and there is an intimacy in music therapy that is important for those who are suffering. Many of the contributors write in their own personal voice, providing a particular insight which will be valuable not only to other music therapists seeking to enrich their own ways of working, but to all those involved in caring for the sick and the dying. Contributors describe their work with both children and adults living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases.
