Welcome to Research and Resources for Music Therapy 2016, which includes references to research and resources in the fields of music therapy and music and health and is organised as a series of sections. This collation of information forms part of Nordoff Robbins’ research vision, which is to develop research-related resources for practitioners, scholars, and those with an interest in music therapy and music and health research. We would like to thank all colleagues who helped us to create this updated edition as well as the researchers whose dedication and toil contributes to the ongoing development of research and resources nationally and internationally. Without their commitment, this document would not exist.

Research and Resources for Music Therapy 2016 follows in the footsteps of the Nordoff Robbins Evidence Bank. The change in name reflects the emphasis of the content of the document. Each section features a range of research publications and other resources, including articles, books and guides which concern practice and research. It also includes journal titles, websites and UK policy and guideline documents relevant to the theme of each section. In addition, the sections draw on three resources created by the Nordoff Robbins research team. Each section includes new sections with references drawn from the Outcome Measures in Music Therapy (2016) and the Nordoff Robbins Academic & Research Review 1980-2015 (2015). All sections also include a link to The International Index of Music Therapy Organisations (IIMTO)(2015).

We hope this is a useful resource for music therapy and music and health practitioners, researchers and students as well as for policy makers, managers and fundraisers who would like to know more about how, when and why music works.

Bibliography

  • Selected bibliography (1990-2016)
  • Additional references from the Nordoff Robbins Academic & Research Review 1980-2015

Resources

  • Outcome measures in music therapy
  • Websites
  • Journals
  • UK policy and guideline documents

Some references and resources are relevant for several topics and are therefore included in more than one Section. When accessing the document electronically, faster access to the topics you are looking for can be gained by typing in your keyword using the ‘find’ function of Adobe Reader: this is done by pressing ‘CTRL’ and ‘F’ on your keyboard.

In collating the Research and Resources for Music Therapy 2016, references for the selected bibliography were found by searching key terms related to each section in Google Scholar, with the publication year of 2014-2016. For example, for Section 1, two searches were carried out: one for ‘music’, ‘ASD’, ‘autism’, ‘autistic’ and one for ‘musical’, ‘ASD’, ‘autism’, ‘autistic’. Publications that were not journal articles, books, book chapters and/or not in English were excluded, as were duplicates. For Section 1, the 118 references identified were reduced to 43 relevant references. Searching for this edition was completed in June 2016.
