Processes of music therapy

Clinical and scientific rationales and models

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article reviews behavioural, psychoanalytic, and humanistic music therapy. It then discusses Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT), the Rational-Scientific Mediating Model (R-SMM), and the Transformational Design Model (TDM). NMT techniques address cognitive, sensory, and motor dysfunction resulting from disease of the human nervous system. NMT theory is founded in a neuroscience model of music perception, known as the R-SMM, which explains how music functions as a mediating stimulus. The R-SMM provides clear guidelines for conducting research regarding music's therapeutic effects. A supplemental model is needed, however, to assist the clinician in translating research findings from the R-SMM into everyday practice. TDM meets this need by providing a systematic, step-by-step approach to designing, implementing, and evaluating clinical interventions.
