This book offers the reader information on the use of music in conjunction with group therapy for the adolescent and adult psychiatric client. It concisely explains how to use music to facilitate group therapy. Theory, techniques, applications and suggested music work are all given. The book is designed for the student who is just beginning a career in human services as well as for the experienced professional seeking to add new techniques to their repertoire of treatment approaches. While the guidelines and examples presented in the book highlight the needs of the client in an inpatient psychiatric setting, the formats are adaptable to other settings as well. This can include the outpatient mental health setting, the residential treatment setting, the inpatient medical unit, the substance abuse treatment program, or intermediate care facility. For, regardless of the setting or the presenting problem of the client, music can be easily blended into a group therapy program. Music therapists, of course, will appreciate this practical book, but it will appeal also to other mental health professionals: psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and social workers.
