|Title:||The Role of the Music Therapist in Promoting Parent-Infant Attachment||Contributor(s):||Edwards, Jane (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/27816||Abstract:||This paper provides a brief overview of recent literature relating to infant musicality and its basis for effective parent-infant work in music therapy. Two strong trends are revealed: the international breadth of the developing work by music therapists within family-centred contexts of practice, especially work with infants and their parents in the early years; and the use oftheoretical principles of communicative musicality (Malloch &Trevarthen, 2008] combined with knowledge of early musical skills. This focus on musical perception and musical development (Briggs, 1991; Trehub, 2003] provides a rationale as to why musical interaction supported by a qualified music therapist can offer a potential pathway for improved attachment between the parent and infant when therapeutic support is indicated.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Canadian Journal of Music Therapy, 20(1), p. 38-48||Publisher:||Canadian Association for Music Therapy||Place of Publication:||Canada||ISSN:||1199-1054||Field of Research (FoR) 2008:||190408 Music Therapy||Field of Research (FoR) 2020:||420103 Music therapy||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||950101 Music||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||https://openmusiclibrary.org/article/48864/
