Exploring the concept of communicative musicality, this multidisciplinary book considers rhythms of connection and ways of fostering meaningful relationships between therapist and child. Including contributions from leading international music therapists, trauma specialists, dance movement therapists, psychobiologists, dramatherapists, explorers in music education, counsellors, play therapists, somatic therapists, specialist theatre and arts-project pioneers, composer-therapists, teachers and researchers, this book presents a broad and in-depth approach to relating in therapy with vulnerable children. Contributors reflect on their own experiences and freely explore their relative fields of expertise. Contemporary theory is woven in with case stories to highlight the emotional realities of working with highly vulnerable children, and to present proven examples of how therapists can improve the quality of connectedness. Full of original and innovative ideas for dealing with attachment issues, trauma, communication difficulties, aggression and anxiety, this is inspiring reading for professionals who work with vulnerable children in creative therapies. Royalty proceeds from the book will be donated to the NSPCC.
