We also have a full Research Summary available to buy, which strives to answer the questions: What is Music Therapy? How does it work and what evidence do we have? It provides an overview of what music therapy is and the research and evidence which demonstrates its value to people facing a range of challenges throughout life. This is unique resource is both comprehensive and accessible, designed for a diverse audience: music therapists, commissioners, and health professionals.
Updated in 2020, this edition includes the most up-to-date evidence base underpinning music therapy and the research studies which have produced the evidence, with guidance for wider reading. However, its focus is expanded to include six different client groups: young children; people on the autistic spectrum; children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties; people with learning disabilities; people with mental illness; and people living with dementia.
