The Handbook of Music Therapy takes the reader on a journey through the historical and contemporary landscape of the field of music therapy, updated with the latest practical, sociocultural and theoretical perspectives and developments in music therapy.

The second edition is divided into four parts: foundation and context; music therapy practice; learning and teaching; and professional life. This includes the trajectory of music therapy as a health, social and community-based discipline in the 21st century with an evolving evidence base that also acknowledges the growing edges in the field, such as perspectives around equity, inclusion and diversity. The editors have included practice-based chapters including contributions from music therapy specialists in the fields of autism, adult learning disability, forensic psychiatry, neurology, immigration and dementia. The second edition is thoroughly updated to showcase a series of new interviews with Elders in the music therapy field, a thoroughly revised first section of the book with new materials on values and principles, updated chapters on music therapy practice, online and print resources supporting music therapy practice including musical illustrations with new and revised examples, and an extensively revised final section with new chapters on professional life and research.

Illustrated with rich case studies and practical examples throughout, The Handbook of Music Therapy covers a variety of different theoretical and philosophical perspectives. It will be invaluable to music therapists (novices, students, professionals), other arts therapists and practitioners such as speech and language therapists, psychotherapists, teachers, community musicians, psychiatrists and social workers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“This book is a ´must read´ for music therapy students and professionals all over the world. It is innovative - written with a frame of poetic journeys through many thresholds for the music therapy profession and the single music therapist. The book covers relevant shifts of paradigms around the planet including current sociocultural issues. Interviews of three distinguished leaders in music therapy are unfolded and flow through the chapters. A richness of diverse information and relevant reflections on music therapy.” - Inge Nygaard Pedersen PhD; Associate Professor Emerita, Aalborg University, Denmark.“This is an impressive new edition of an excellent resource for music therapy students, professionals and faculty. This revision includes expanded awareness and focus on issues of equity, diversity and inclusion. The editors are situated in who they are and how their positionality impacts the lenses they bring to this edition. Framed as a series of ‘thresholds’ this book takes us from rites of passage in training, to social, political, and historical thresholds to mythological and metaphorical thresholds. I applaud all of the work that has gone into this new edition. This will be a spectacular resource for the music therapy community for many years to come.” - Professor Michele Forinash PhD: Director, PhD Programme in Expressive Therapies, Lesley University, Cambridge, MA, US.
