Collaborations Within and Between Dramatherapy and Music Therapy

Experiences, Challenges and Opportunities in Clinical and Training Contexts

Edited by Amelia Oldfield and Mandy Carr. Foreword by Rebecca Applin Warner

Quick Overview

Music therapy and dramatherapy share many of the same techniques and purposes, yet the full potential of combining aspects of the two disciplines is yet to be explored. This book examines the ways in which they can be brought together, and unpacks the various contexts in which this approach can be taught and put to practice.

In this insightful book, Oldfield and Carr draw together persuasive arguments for combining aspects of music therapy and dramatherapy, whilst retaining their unique facets.

Building on the many links between music and drama and the compatibility between the two disciplines, the authors explore how artistic aspects of each therapy can be drawn on to create fresh ways of working. This approach enriches the practice of professionals working to support people with special needs, people recovering from trauma and social deprivation and a wide range of other service users. Despite the significant overlap in music therapy and dramatherapy techniques, this is the first book to directly explore the vast potential of elements of the two disciplines being brought together.

Covering a range of different perspectives and practice contexts, this book demonstrates just how much the professions can offer each other both from a clinical perspective and from the point of view of training therapists.
