This book introduces a model of music therapy that places artistry at its core. In this model, the aim of music therapy is to help clients reconcile and transform the various dichotomies in their lives, as they are uniquely encountered and worked through in each client’s musical and artistic endeavors and creations. The first part of the book contains chapters that provide a theoretical frame for Artistic Music Therapy, its reliance on improvisation, and its social applications. The second part contains chapters that describe its use with comorbid substance abuse and a case study on sexual dysfunction.
