Music Therapy and survival: Our guardianship for those who follow

Abstract

This paper outlines a sociological perspective of music therapy as an important habilitation and rehabilitation process in times of rapid change. Music therapists face new pressures relating to present economic decisions made by governing bodies. Therefore they must be supported in their guardianship of the profession, its continued development and its integrity. More client groups have identified cultural and socio-economic disadvantages, and therapy training must nurture awareness and sensitivity to these groups of people.

Key words: Music therapy; profession; health economics
