Benedikte B. Scheiby trained with the developer of analytical music therapy (AMT), Mary Priestley, and educated other music therapists in this approach for over 20 years. The 23 chapters in this anthology capture her unique voice as an author, including reflections on her own life and career as well as those of colleagues.
Readers will learn the story of her role in the development of AMT and of her unique ways of understanding its theoretical and clinical dimensions. They will also become acquainted with the music psychotherapy journeys of a diverse group of individuals, including people with neurological and other medical conditions, music therapy students in training, and caregivers. And they will get insight into the subtle and complex interaction of psychodynamic phenomena such as transference and countertransference in their uniquely musical manifestations.
This text will be of relevance to music therapists and students with a variety of interests, including readers who would like to learn how the tenets and practices of AMT have been implemented in contemporary treatment contexts, and those who are interested in how musical improvisation is integrated into advanced clinical music therapy practice.
The price of this book has been subsidized by the Florence Tyson Fund for the Creative Arts Therapies.
