Musings on the State of Music Therapy Research: Strengths, Challenges, and Future Directions

by Kimberly on March 18, 2014 · 2 comments

Earlier this month I invited Dr. Michael Anestis, a clinical psychologist and researcher, to share his perspectives on music therapy research. By his own admission, his area of focus is mental health research—which omits the medical, rehabilitation, developmental, wellness, and preventive areas of focus in music therapy research—but I felt he had fair and valid points that I am sure are not unique to him. So I asked Michael to share his thoughts on the Music Therapy Maven, following which I would write a response.

My response is written and has been recently posted to the Psychotherapy Brown Bag blog. I invite you to check it out and, better yet, to share YOUR thoughts in the comments section of the post.

Here’s the link again: http://www.psychotherapybrownbag.com/psychotherapy_brown_bag_a/2014/03/post-2-in-the-discussion-of-the-evidence-base-for-music-therapy-in-the-treatment-of-mental-illnesses.html

Maybe I’m totally oblivious, but do people actually search for this stuff?
