Aldridge (qualitative research in medicine, U. of Witten-Herdecke), who has written several other books on music therapy, compiles 11 essays by European contributors for music therapists and scholars in the field. Essays center on the use of music therapy for neurological rehabilitation in cases of dementia, dialogic-degenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, those in persistent vegetative states, multiple sclerosis, and chronic aphasia. Other chapters discuss traditional Oriental music therapy, art therapy for paraplegics, and music therapy in gesture and dialogue.
