Community Music Therapy


"Community Music Therapy follows the 'ripple effect' of music how it spreads outwards, attracts people, naturally involves them in musicing. Community Music therapy is a way of considering music therapy in more culturally, socially and politically sensitive ways. It suggests new practices and new thinking for music therapy in the 21st century, and offers a critique of some older ones. In this first book on Community Music Therapy Pavlicevic and Ansdell are joined by 14 music therapists from different parts of the world who work in conventional and unconventional settings with a variety of client groups, and who offer new perspectives on their work: on their identity and role as a music therapist, the sites and boundaries of their work, their aims and the means for achieving these, and their assumptions and attitudes about how music, people and context interact."
