Populations include individuals suffering with depression or anxiety disorders, psychiatric patients, alcoholics and substance abusers, persons with traumatic brain damage, and individuals with AIDS. It describes how music therapy can be used in the treatment of children and adolescents as well as the elderly and terminally ill. There is also a chapter on using this approach to therapy to promote wellness and well-being, providing examples of music experiences that can facilitate relaxation and stress reduction, improve coping and problem-solving abilities, and promote healthy habits.
