This book provides an approach to community music therapy practice. It addresses aspects of music therapy formats, aims, context, evaluation and theory, using a "matrix" model. Through case studies, original research and theory vignettes, the text offers an accessible way of integrating music therapy services and professional processes. Practical examples are drawn from neurological rehabilitation in medical and community settings, and from long term nursing care, to illustrate how music therapy can adapt to meet the needs of participants and their situating context. The political, ethical, clinical and philosophical implications of this approach are considered.
