Journal/Book: British Journal of Music Therapy. 1999; 13: 21-27.
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of the needs of children receiving care in hospital, including a review of the research and case-study literature addressing music therapy practice with this population. The use of music therapy in individual programs to address pain, psychological needs and anxiety in hospitalised children is described. A brief case study outlines the ways in which the therapist must be flexible and adaptive in approaching the time and space dimensions of work in this context.
