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.

Music's ability to express and arouse emotions is a mystery that has fascinated both experts and laymen at least since ancient Greece. The predecessor to this book 'Music and Emotion' (OUP, 2001) was critically and commercially successful and stimulated much further work in this area. In the years since publication of that book, empirical research in this area has blossomed, and the successor to 'Music and Emotion' reflects the considerable activity in this area. The Handbook of Music and Emotion offers an 'up-to-date' account of this vibrant domain. It provides comprehensive coverage of the many approaches that may be said to define the field of music and emotion, in all its breadth and depth. The first section offers multi-disciplinary perspectives on musical emotions from philosophy, musicology, psychology, neurobiology, anthropology, and sociology. The second section features methodologically-oriented chapters on the measurement of emotions via different channels (e.g., self report, psychophysiology, neuroimaging). Sections three and four address how emotion enters into different aspects of musical behavior, both the making of music and its consumption. Section five covers developmental, personality, and social factors. Section six describes the most important applications involving the relationship between music and emotion. In a final commentary, the editors comment on the history of the field, summarize the current state of affairs, as well as propose future directions for the field. The only book of its kind, The Handbook of Music and Emotion will fascinate music psychologists, musicologists, music educators, philosophers, and others with an interest in music and emotion (e.g., in marketing, health, engineering, film, and the game industry). It will be a valuable resource for established researchers in the field, a developmental aid for early-career researchers and postgraduate research students, and a compendium to assist students at various levels. In addition, as with its predecessor, it will also attract interest from practising musicians and lay readers fascinated by music and emotion.

Music is a tremendously powerful channel through which people develop their personal and social identities. Music is used to communicate emotions, thoughts, political statements, social relationships, and physical expressions. But, just as language can mediate the construction and negotiation of developing identities, so music can also be a means of communication through which aspects of people's identities are constructed. Music can have a profound influence on our developing sense of identity, our values, and our beliefs, be it from rock music, classical music, or jazz. Musical identities (MacDonald, Hargreaves and Miell, 2002) was unique in being in being one of the first books to explore this fascinating topic. This new book documents the remarkable expansion and growth in the study of musical identities since the publication of the earlier work. The editors identify three main features of current psychological approaches to musical identities, which concern their definition, development, and the identification of individual differences, as well as four main real-life contexts in which musical identities have been investigated, namely in music and musical institutions; specific geographical communities; education; and in health and well-being. This conceptual framework provides the rationale for the structure of the Handbook. The book is divided into seven main sections. The first, 'Sociological, discursive and narrative approaches', includes several general theoretical accounts of musical identities from this perspective, as well as some more specific investigations. The second and third main sections deal in depth with two of the three psychological topics described above, namely the development of and individual differences in musical identities. The fourth, fifth and sixth main sections pursue three of the real-life contexts identified above, namely 'Musical institutions and practitioners', 'Education', and 'Health and well-being'. The seventh and final main section of the Handbook - 'Case studies' - includes chapters which look at particular musical identities in specific times, places, or contexts. The multidisciplinary range and breadth of the Handbook's contents reflect the rapid changes that are taking place in music, in digital technology, and in their role in society as a whole, such that the study of musical identity is likely to proliferate even further in the future.

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

The new edition of The Child as Musician: A Handbook of Musical Development celebrates the richness and diversity of the many different ways in which children can engage in and interact with music. It presents theory - both cutting edge and classic - in an accessible way for readers by surveying research concerned with the development and acquisition of musical skills. The focus is on musical development from conception to late adolescences, although the bulk of the coverage concentrates on the period when children are able to begin formal music instruction (from around age 3) until the final year of formal schooling (around age 18). There are many conceptions of how musical development might take place, just as there are for other disciplines and areas of human potential. Consequently, the publication highlights the diversity in current literature dealing with how we think about and conceptualise children's musical development. Each of the authors has searched for a better and more effective way to explain in their own words and according to their own perspective, the remarkable ways in which children engage with music. In the field of educational psychology there are a number of publications that survey the issues surrounding child and adolescent development. Some of the more innovative present research and theories, and their educational implications, in a style that stresses the fundamental interplay among the biological, environmental, social and cultural influences at each stage of a child's development. Until now, no similar overview has existed for child and adolescent development in the field of music. The Child as Musician addresses this imbalance, and is essential for those in the fields of child development, music education, and music cognition.

The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine has firmly established itself as the definitive book on the subject and is used in more than 8,000 palliative care services in over 100 countries. This new edition has been completely rewritten and revised to reflect the rapid growth of the specialty. Two world-famous doctors, Sir Kenneth Calman and Nathan Cherny, bring vast experience to the book and have joined Derek Doyle and Geoffrey Hanks on the editorial team. There are authoritative, international contributions from over 150 renowned experts. The book provides comprehensive coverage of ethical issues, communication, research, patient evaluation and outcome measures, the principles of drug use, symptom management, and the management of pain. Nutrition, paediatric palliative medicine, palliative medicine in non-malignant disease, cultural and spiritual issues, social, and work related issues, rehabilitation, complementary therapies, palliative medicine in the home, bereavement, and education and training are also covered in detail. The new edition includes sixty-six completely new chapters and contributors. New sections and chapters devoted exclusively to such non-malignant conditions as cardiac disease, non-malignant respiratory disease, non-malignant neurological disease and AIDS have been added as well as new chapters on palliative medicine in intensive care and geriatric care, and complementary and alternative therapies in palliative medicine. There is a brand new section on the contributions to palliative care of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, music- , art- and speech- therapists, stoma therapists, clinical pharmacists and clinical psychologists. Every chapter used in the first two editions has been radically reviewed and brought up to date. A striking new page and cover design reflects the significant changes made in this edition. Like its predecessors, OTPM3 will be the trusted and ultimate reference which no palliative care service or medical library can afford to be without.
