Music Therapy in Palliative Care is a comparatively new area in a rapidly expanding profession. Its contribution lies in a clinical practice that incorporates many different music therapy approaches. The use of songs, pre-recorded music, Guided Imagery and Music and Improvisation all play equal roles in establishing diverse techniques that have already established this area of music therapy as being vital for the further development of the profession.
This book includes the proceedings from the International Conference, Music Therapy in Palliative Care held at Sir Michael Sobell House Hospice, Oxford in 1994. The contributors are all specialists and address issues that are relevant to music therapists, healthcare professionals and those interested in the use of music with the dying. The book is divided into seven sections covering education, bereavement, spirituality, imagery, neurology, GIM and the use of improvisation. It is essential reading for music therapists and provides a comprehensive resource for hospices. Further, it is hoped that this publication will attract readers from the arts, to musicians who recognize the ability of music to transcend the every day and establish an opening that is reliant on, but looks beyond words.
