A contemporary look at the clinical work of Paul Nordoff and Clive Robbins as it was originally formulated, and as it developed within the context of their personal and professional lives. The author, a pioneer in qualitative research, presents a comprehensive analysis of eight case studies drawn from the Nordoff-Robbins archives, and then compares them in order to identify commonalities and idiosyncrasies in the childrenâ€™s growth as well as in the approach itself. Important topics addressed are: form and structure in clinical improvisation, music as agent of change, the clinical process, and the therapeutic relationship. This book is a benchmark in qualitative research and Nordoff-Robbins therapy. (1998; Paperback, 362 pages with 2 CDs: $57.50).
