The Clinician’s Guide to Forensic Music Therapy provides information and advice on how to effectively and safely deliver two context-specific, systematic approaches in forensic music therapy.
The two clinically tested treatment manuals have been specifically designed for use by music therapists and other clinicians working in prisons and secure hospital settings. They provide in-depth practical guidance for a variety of contexts and specific attention is given to risk assessment, responsivity to treatment and recovery. The book also includes advice on clinical evaluation, taking the complexities of diagnosis and patient needs into consideration.
As the very first of its kind, and written by two leading practitioners of forensic music therapy, this book is essential reading for any music therapist and student of music therapy. It will also be of interest to other clinicians working in correctional or secure psychiatric settings and includes a chapter for them on how to use music effectively.
