This practical book describes the specific use of receptive (listening) methods and techniques in music therapy clinical practice and research, including relaxation with music for children and adults, the use of visualisation and imagery, music and collage, song-lyric discussion, vibroacoustic applications, music and movement techniques, and other forms of aesthetic listening to music. The authors explain these receptive methods of intervention using a format that enables practitioners to apply them in practice and make informed choices about music suitable for each of the different techniques. Protocols are described step-by-step, with reference to the necessary environment, conditions, skills and appropriate musical material.
Receptive Methods in Music Therapy will prove indispensable to music therapy students, practitioners, educators and researchers.

This is an extremely practical book, which will be very helpful to students who may believe that they require a precise and pragmatic step by step guide for facilitating different types of music therapy sessions. This was especially evident in most chapters emphasising the verbal relaxation inductions. Every detail has been considered to ensure the successful application of each method including contra-indicators when necessary when necessary. -- Community Living Magazine
Denise Grocke and Tony Wigram are to be congratulated for addressing how the music therapist applies music listening as a therapeutic tool. Because every music therapy encounter involves receiving music in some way, it is exceedingly challenging to describe the role of receptive music in a single volume. Yet, the authors succeed in providing an excellent compendium of techniques that are part of the music therapist's repertoire. Students and professionals will be well-served by this essential guidebook on the practice of receptive music therapy. The authors have contributed an important text, affirming, once again, their expertise in the field of music therapy. -- Nordic Journal of Music Therapy
While I take the perspective of a music therapy educator and strongly recommend this text for all students, I also see myself as a life long learner and this book has provided me with new and inspiring methods organized in such a way as to function as a reference text, Each chapter stands alone so the student/therapist can flick to relevant parts easily. As the first book of its kind on receptive methods in music therapy, this book will serve many needs of all music therapists and students. -- Australian Journal of Music Therapy
This book offers a thought provoking insight into the powerful and therapeutic effect of music, not just for music therapists but for all those interested in music and the application of art therapies. -- Community Living
