This book is an overview of evidence-based music therapy practice across the lifespan and within multiple settings. The nine chapters describe clinical areas of music therapy for infant and early childhood development; special education; medical treatment; neurologic rehabilitation; mental health and counseling; hospice; older adults; and wellness. Each treatment area complies with the common model of service delivery, including characteristics and needs of the specific population as well as typical therapeutic outcomes. Research-based music therapy interventions are provided through text, images, infographics, clinical videos, hyperlinks, in-depth resources, and a comprehensive reference list.
