In this new third edition, the author has pleasantly included 14 years of literature appearing since the second edition and made changes in terminology to reflect the publication of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Ed. (DSM-5), which was published in 2013 by the American Psychiatric Association. This book is divided into three major sections. Part I defines music therapy and discusses the music therapist's education and training. Part II gives the historical background for music therapy, the perspective of the use of music in healing practices from ancient times to the present. Part III begins with a discussion of general guidelines for using music in therapy, followed by specific examples of music therapy clinical practices with various client populations. The final section concludes with an overview of several approaches to music therapy practice and a discussion of the importance of research for the practicing clinician. Some of the specific information to gain from this text is enumerated in the introduction to each section. Each chapter concludes with a summary, questions to help the reader reflect upon or apply the information, and suggestions for further reading. Since it is an introduction to music therapy, this book is directed primarily toward students in introductory music therapy courses; and professionals in related disciplines who desire a basic knowledge of the scope of music therapy. In addition, those who use this text should be aware that its construction was guided by the philosophy that introductory courses in music therapy should primarily emphasize the use of music as an integral part of the treatment process, since using music and music-based experiences as their primary treatment modality is what sets music therapists apart from other therapists.
