ISBN : 9781937440183
E-ISBN : 9781937440190

An exploration of the myriad relational dimensions of music therapy. An intersubjective perspective is highlighted in examining how therapeutic change may come about though non-verbal relational processes at a micro-level. These processes are illustrated through psychotherapeutic work in individual and group settings, including expressive and receptive music therapy methods. The scientific basis is interpretative phenomenology, while exploring philosophical, theoretical, and clinical sources to engage with the nature of music therapy micro-processes. The book may be interesting to theoretician and clinicians alike.
