Music therapy in Japan: An 11-year update
Journal/Book: Journal of Music therapy. 1987; Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. National Association for Music therapy. journal article.
Abstract: In the past 10 years, music therapy in Japan has begun to make an impact in the mental health field. An increase in research and publication can be attributed in part to the efforts of the Japan Society for the Study of Music Therapy and the Japanese Association of Music Psychology and Therapy. The Japanese still face the same difficulties now, however, as they did a decade ago. These difficulties include the lack of music therapy college degree programs and an absence of certification requirements for practitioners.
