Case Examples of Music Therapy for Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses

Author : Kenneth E. Bruscia

Case Examples of Music Therapy for Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses
E-ISBN : 9781937440251

Case examples provide very unique and valuable insights into how different forms of therapy are practiced, as well as how clients respond to those therapies. This e-book contains 10 previously published case studies on how music therapy has been used to help individuals with schizophrenia or other psychosis improve their quality of life. Each case details the process by which therapist and client engage in music experiences that enable the client to explore and better utilize the personal resources needed to address his or her own therapeutic needs. The aim of the book is to provide practical information to students and professionals in music therapy and related fields and to inform all those affected by  about the potential benefits of music therapy.
