Two Case Examples using Participatory music as a Therapeutic metaphor in a community mental health setting, 1.6.15

Here is a paper I wrote about Two Case Examples using Participatory music as a Therapeutic metaphor in a community mental health setting in the UK

In this practice report we explore the application of community music in a drop-in community mental health setting. This report will map out how our practice of community music that was “therapy-aware” used music as a personal metaphor and analogy for service users’ mental health issues. Two brief case examples showing the application of metaphor and analogy will be outlined, followed by a wider discussion about the implications of this approach within community mental health settings.
