In "Interactive Music Therapy - A Positive Approach", Amelia Oldfield explains how her approach to music therapy sessions establishes a constructive musical dialogue with children that emphasises positive experiences - these establish trust and allow feelings to be expressed through music. Describing the general benefits of this approach, the author also details its application for specific clinical groups, including children with autistic spectrum disorders, relationship difficulties or physical disabilities. Individual chapters focus on the use of music therapy for diagnostic assessment, child development issues and in child and family psychiatry. Brief case studies throughout the text illustrate points of particular importance. This practical book will be of use to music therapists, nurses and occupational therapists working with children from a variety of clinical groups, including children on the autism spectrum and children with learning disabilities. It is also of use to music therapy trainers, their students and academics whose interests include music therapy.
