Italian Translator: Andrea Coiro

After studying electric bass for four years in Rome, IT, I was accepted to the Bass Collective in New York City where I completed a certificate program in multi-style performance. When I got back to Rome, my perspective on music shifted, however. I no longer considered music to be solely an aesthetic, external expression. There was something much more profound going on behind the notes and harmonies. I began to look more closely at the sound, rhythm, and vibration components of the music I was playing, the music that is all around us in nature, the music that our oI began to look more deliberately at the ways in which music can be used and applied to our daily life, and came across music therapy. This is how I chose to go back to school, to the Conservatorio Luisa D’Annunzio di Pescara, which, unfortunately for Italy’s sake, is one of the few programs in Italy currently teaching the techniques and practice of music therapy. When Director of WFMT, Amy Clement Cortez, paid a visit to our school in the summer of 2016, she shared with us the nature and findings from her widespread, international research. Recognizing that the field of research for music therapy is being conducted and reported at a much quicker rate in other continents—specifically North America, Asia, and other parts of Europe—she was looking for someone in the class to translate the scientific research documents and papers being produced around the world into the Italian language. I am honored to hold this role, contributing to the translation of critical research, so the most effective methods and practices of music therapy can be shared and cultivated in my home country as they are around the globe.

Trauma-informed Care in the NICU – Implications for Parents and Staff
Mary Coughlin McNeil

Neonatal intensive care has dramatically improved the survival of the tiniest infants born at the cusp of viability in addition to meeting the medical and surgical needs of infants born with an array of conditions that pose a life threat to the newborn.  Despite advances in technology, however, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) survivors experience a myriad of physical, behavioral and developmental challenges once they are discharged. Most recently a trauma-informed care paradigm for neonatal intensive care has been introduced to mitigate and minimize many post NICU infant morbidities. It is clear, that trauma-informed care makes sense for the infant who finds them self in a life-threatening situation at birth, however, the implications for this paradigm extend beyond the infant.
The purpose of this paper is to examine the implications of a trauma-informed paradigm in the NICU for parents and clinicians.

An Interview with Janina Fisher PhD: Perspectives on Trauma Theory and Treatment
Andrew Rossetti MMT, LCAT, MT-BC & Marija Pranjic

Janina Fisher PhD has collaborated with many of the pillars in the field of trauma theory and treatment – including Judith Herman, Bessel van der Kolk, and Pat Ogden – and she is a pioneering force and innovator in her own right. A prominent clinician and consultant, Dr. Fisher is a licensed clinical psychologist and instructor at the Trauma Center, an outpatient clinic and research center founded by Bessel van der Kolk. The opportunity to interview Dr. Fisher stemmed from her participation in the conference Trauma Theory & Treatment: Somatosensorial Implications of Resilience, hosted by the Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. The conference lectures included mental healthcare professionals ranging from a broad spectrum of disciplines, with a strong showing of music therapists with specialties in trauma treatment with diverse populations. As conference co-chair I took the opportunity to interview Dr. Fisher, who graciously agreed to sit down with me and answer some questions. As a music psychotherapist whose work centers on pre-emptive strategies in fragile hospital populations such as newly diagnosed cancer patients receiving radiation therapy, her in-depth and thoughtful responses to my probing questions offered unique insight.  At various junctures, I provide some commentary to contextualize some of the salient themes. Her comments expand upon the growth and ‘interdisciplinarization’ of the evolving field of trauma. We are indeed fortunate to have her share her knowledge and expertise on its inner workings and perspectives within these pages. The following is a candid exchange in which Dr. Fisher provides insight not only on her ideas on the neurobiological nature of trauma, but also how musical concepts, and her own musical training in her youth informs her clinical approach in working with victims of emotional trauma. I am grateful to Marija Pranjic for transcribing the interview. (Joanne Loewy)

All Roads Lead To Where I Stand: A Veteran Case Review
Kristen Stewart
The purpose of this article is to illustrate individualized clinical practice in music therapy as part of treatment programming for veterans with PTSD. Multidimensional aspects of treatment are referenced through an integrative and multi-modal approach to highlight the coordination of processes in meeting veteran needs and goals. The incorporation of Somatic Experiencing® techniques will also be highlighted as a means of promoting stabilization and developing resiliency by increasing awareness of sensate experience to help resolve fixated physiologic states due to traumatic stress. Current trauma models will be reviewed to help explore additional needs for growth in music therapy practice in the treatment of veterans coping with trauma.

Keywords: trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, integral psychology, felt sense, Somatic Experiencing

Listening to Music Improves Language Skills in Children Prenatally Exposed to Cocaine
Stephen W. Porges et al.
Abstract:The effectiveness of listening to music, as an intervention to improve language skills, was tested with young children prenatally exposed to cocaine. In addition to the prenatal exposure to cocaine, these children often share family experiences such as substance abuse, poverty, and mental illness that are prevalent in chronically stressed families in which abuse and trauma are likely to occur. In the current study 62 children, between the ages of 17 and 30 months, who were receiving a center-based intervention program, participated in a 16-week music-based trial. The trial consisted of listening to music 5 days a week for 16 weeks.  During the first week music listening sessions were 50-minutes and during the subsequent 15 weeks the daily listening sessions were 10 minutes. Participants were randomly assigned to three groups: a filtered music group that listened to vocal music filtered to emphasize frequencies within the bandwidth of spontaneous human speech, an unfiltered music group that listened to the same vocal music in its original unaltered form, and a control group that only received the standard early intervention services provided by the preschool. Outcomes were evaluated with assessments for expressive and receptive language skills. Results document that children, who listened to either the filtered or unaltered music, showed greater gains on language skills than the control group.  The findings suggest that providing scheduled times to listen to vocal music similar to a mother singing a lullaby would provide a simple cost-effective language intervention.
Keywords: language skills; music therapy; prenatal cocaine exposure; children; Polyvagal Theory.

Trauma, Disability and the Development of the “Wounded Healer” Identity: A Music Therapist’s Personal Perspective
David Abbott
A medical memoir addressing the author’s history of trauma, limb loss, use of music as a resource, and how these experiences shaped his pursuit of education and career in music therapy.  The significant influence of Jung’s “wounded healer” concept (particularly as elucidated by Kirmayer) on the development of the author’s identity as a clinician with a history of trauma is discussed. The importance of addressing the needs of wounded clinicians, and the risks and benefits of disclosure, are explored.
Keywords: trauma, wounded healer, countertransference, limb loss

Weaving Words and Music: Healing from Trauma for People with Serious Mental Illness
Gillian Stephens Langdon
This paper will present the development of music verbal trauma groups for people with serious mental illness. The work grew out the collaboration of an interdisciplinary trauma committee in an urban mental health center.  Recognizing the high rates of childhood trauma histories in this population members of the committee recognized the importance of including music and creative arts in the treatment of complex trauma. We will outline the interdisciplinary collaboration and the structure of the groups. Elements of music as tools in trauma treatment are described along with using words to identify specific problems and solutions. Examples of our clinical work will be shared from this interweaving of words and music. Brief vignettes will demonstrate survivors’ journeys as they begin to identify and create safety, build healthy relationships, and maintain equilibrium while facing the challenges of their past traumatic experiences.

Moral Injury and Music Therapy: Music as a vehicle for access
Torrey Gimpel
Moral Injury as a construct continues to be explored and refined as researchers develop models of treatment and clearer definitions for diagnosis. The complexity of moral injury mirrors the complexity of the combat experience- distinctive situations where required actions (e.g., killing) within war may lead to transgressions of deeply held moral or ethical principles within the individual. These transgressive acts may lead to inner conflicts that are outside the typical purview of traditional PTSD treatment. Music therapy offers a unique vehicle for access to the inner conflict of MI and combat-related traumatic experiences while promoting expression, present-moment support, and creating opportunities for new perspectives through the malleable medium of music.

Relaxation Effects of Musically Guided Resonance Breathing:
A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study
Music therapy and resonance breathing (breathing at about 0.1 Hz) may be effective in treating stress-related symptoms and promoting relaxation. However, no identified study has explicitly explored the potential of integrating the working mechanisms into a combined approach using live played music to guide respiration. Therefore, the objective of the present pilot study was to evaluate the psychophysiological effects of a combined intervention. A total of 60 healthy adults were randomized to either the experimental group or the control group (where participants listened to prerecorded relaxation music). Heart rate and heart rate variability were extracted for the following 5-minute segments: Resting baseline, stress task, intervention, resting post-intervention. Additionally, self-evaluation scores for relaxation and general well-being were assessed with visual analogue scales. Significant time × group interaction effects were found for general well-being (p = .028) and heart rate variability as measured by RMSSD (p < .001), indicative of increased parasympathetic outflow in the experimental group. In conclusion, the combination of music therapy and resonance breathing seems to be a well-received and effective way to induce relaxation and well-being in healthy adults.
Keywords: Music Therapy, Heart Rate Variability, Relaxation, Respiration

Efectos de Relajación en Respiración Resonante Guiada con Música: estudio piloto controlado aleatorio

La Musicoterapia y la respiración resonante (respiración en 0.1 HZ) puede ser efectiva en el tratamiento de síntomas relacionados al stress y promover la relajación. Sin embargo, ningún estudio identificado ha explorado explícitamente el potencial de integrar los mecanismos de trabajo en un abordaje combinado utilizando música en vivo para guiar la respiración. Por lo tanto, el objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar los efectos psicofisiológicos de esta intervención combinada. Un total de 60 adultos saludables fueron aleatoriamente dispuestos en un grupo experimental o en un grupo control (donde los participantes escucharon música relajante pregrabada). La frecuencia cardíaca y la variabilidad de esta frecuencia fueron tomadas de los siguientes períodos de 5 minutos; línea de base en reposo, tarea de stress, intervención, descanso post intervención. Además, se realizaron puntuaciones de autoevaluación para la relajación y el bienestar general utilizando escalas viso-analógicas. Se encontraron efectos significativos de interacción de tiempo x grupo para el bienestar general (p=.038) y la variabilidad de la frecuencia cardíaca medida por RMSSD (p=<.001) indicativo de un aumento del flujo parasimpático en el grupo experimental.  En conclusión, la combinación de musicoterapia y respiración resonante parece ser una forma eficaz y que es bien recibida para inducir la relajación y el bienestar en adultos sanos.

Entspannungseffekte musikalisch geleiteter Resonanzatmung: eine randomisiert kontrollierte Pilotstudie

Musiktherapie und Resonanzatmung (Atmen mit etwa 0.1 Hz) könnte  die Behandlung stressrelevanter Symptome und die Entspannung effektiv fördern. Jedoch hat keine Studie explizit das Potential  erforscht, den Arbeitsmechanismus mit einen kombinierten Ansatz zu kombinieren, bei dem Live-Musik benutzt wird, um die Atmung zu beeinflussen. Deshalb war das Ziel dieser Pilotstudie,  die psychophysischen Effekte einer kombinierten Intervention zu evaluieren. Insgesamt wurden 60 gesunde Erwachsenen randomisiert einer experimentellen oder einer Kontrollgruppe zugeteilt (in der die Teilnehmer eine aufgenommene Entspannungsmusik  hörten). Herzschlag und Herzschlagvariabilität wurden in folgenden 5-minütigen Sequenzen aufgeschrieben: Ruhe-Baseline, stressvolle Aufgabe, Intervention, Post-Intervention in Ruhe. Zusätzlich wurden Selbstevaluation-Scores zu Entspannung und generellem Wohlbefinden mit visuellen Analog-Skalen eingeschätzt. Signifikante Zeit x Gruppen Interaktionseffekte  wurden für das generelle Wohlbefinden (p= .028 und die Herzschlagvariabilität gefunden, gemessen mit RMSSD (p< .001), als Indikator für zunehmenden parasympathischen Wirung bei der Experimentalgruppe. Als Ergebnis scheint die Kombination von Musiktherapie und Resonanzatmung eine wirksame und effektive Maßnahme für Entspannung und Wohlbefinden bei gesunden Erwachsenen zu sein.

Keywords: Musiktherapie, Herzschlagvariabilität, Entspannung, Atmung

音樂治療與共振呼吸(以0.1赫茲頻率呼吸) 在治療壓力相關症狀和促進放鬆方面可能是有效的。然而,沒有任何經過證實的研究確切的探討使用現場演奏的音樂引導呼吸的方法結合到處遇機制的可能性。因此,本初探研究的目標即為評估此結合式的處遇機制對生心理帶來的影響。研究中共有60名健康成人受試者隨機分配到實驗組與對照組(受試者聆聽事先錄製的音樂)。心跳速率與心率變異性則在以下五分鐘的段落中擷取:休息狀態基線、壓力性任務、處遇過程、處預後的休息狀態。此外,放鬆與一般健康狀態的自評分數也使用視覺模擬評分來進行評估。我們發現在一般幸福感(p = .028)及RMSSD心率變異測量(p < .001)上有顯著的時間x團體互動效果,實驗組的副交感神經流量明顯增加。總結來說,結合音樂治療與共振呼吸來引導放鬆與促進幸福感對健康成人而言似乎是個能被接受且有效果的方式。


Clinical Observations of Live, Improvisational Harp Music in Neonatal Intensive Care
Music Therapy services in Neonatal Intensive Care Units has received growing
attention through an increasing body of research and practice.  As part of
a developmental program in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, live improvisational
harp music was used with a selection of medically stable infants and their
families.  The music intervention used a Reverie Harp played by a
qualified music therapist, tailored to the infant’s individual responses. These
sessions were simultaneously observed by a nurse who was certified in NIDCAP
(Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program). The NIDCAP
observations were used to note what effect, if any, this type of music
intervention had on the infant’s behavioral state and regulation. The
behavioral observations and the responses to the music were shown to be calming
and enabled the infants to self-regulate their behavior. Further research is
required to substantiate the efficacy of live improvisational harp music
tailored to the infant’s responses and its place among other music
interventions in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Collaborating with an
experienced nurse in the introduction of music therapy services is worthwhile
in identifying infants and their families who may benefit from specific music

Los servicios de Musicoterapia en las unidades de Intensivas Neonatales han recibido una creciente atención a través del incremento de las investigaciones y prácticas. Como parte del desarrollo de un programa dentro de una Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales , se utilizó  música en vivo improvisada en arpa con una selección de infantes médicamente estables y sus familias. En las intervenciones musicales se utilizó el Arpa Raverie ejecutada por un musicoterapeuta calificado, y estas intervenciones estaban personalizadas a las respuestas individuales del bebé. Las sesiones fueron observadas en simultáneo por una enfermera calificada en NIDCAP (Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program).  Estas observaciones NIDCAP fueron utilizadas para dar cuenta de que tipo de efecto, si había uno, tenía esta intervención en el estado conductual del infante y en su regulación. Las observaciones conductuales y las respuestas a la música demostraron ser calmantes y les permitían a los infantes auto-regularse. Se requieren investigaciones adicionales para corroborar la eficacia de la música improvisada en vivo con arpa, personalizada a las respuestas del infante,  y su lugar junto a otras intervenciones dentro de las Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales. Resultó útil la colaboración de una enfermera capacitada para introducir la musicoterapia al servicio y para identificar infantes y familias que se pueden beneficiar con estas intervenciones musicales específicas.

Klinische Beobachtungen von live- improvisierter  Harfenmusik in der Neugeborenen-Intensivstation

Abstract: Musiktherapieangebote in Neugeborenen-Intensivstationen haben durch die zunehmende Anzahl von Forschung und Praxis wachsende Aufmerksamkeit erregt.  Als Teil eines Entwicklungsprogramms in einer Neugeborenen- Intensivstationen wurde live -improvisierte Harfenmusik bei ausgewählten medizinisch stabilen Kindern und ihren Familien gespielt. Als  Musikintervention spielte eine qualifizierte Musiktherapeutin eine Reverie-Harfe, die sich nach den individuellen Response des Kindes richtete. Diese Sitzungen wurden simultan von einer NIDCAP zertifizierten Krankenschwester beobachtet  (Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program). Die NIDCAP-Beobachtungen wurden dazu genutzt festzuhalten, welchen möglichen Effekt diese Art der musikalischen Intervention auf das Verhalten und die Regulation des Kindes hat. Die Verhaltensbeobachtungen und die Response auf die Musik zeigten, dass diese Musik das Kind beruhigt und es befähigt, sein Verhalten selbst zu regulieren. Weitere Forschung  ist nötig, um die Wirksamkeit von live-improvisierter und auf das Kind zugeschnittener Harfenmusik und ihren Platz unter anderen Musik-Interventionen in der Neugeborenen-Intensivstation zu untermauern. Zur Einführung von Musiktherapieangeboten ist die Zusammenarbeit mit einer erfahrenen Krankenschwester wertvoll, um Kinder und ihre Familien heraus zu finden, die von speziellen Musikinterventionen profitieren können.

透過越來越多的研究與實務工作,新生兒加護病房的音樂治療服務日益受到矚目。作為新生兒加護病房發展計畫的一部分,健康狀況穩定的新生兒及家人可以選擇現場即興演奏的豎琴音樂。由一位合格的音樂治療師使用小豎琴(Reverie Harp)針對個別新生兒的反應進行音樂介入。這些介入療程同時由一名NIDCAP(新生兒個別化發展照護與評估計畫)認證的護士進行觀察。NIDCAP 觀察用來指出這種類型的音樂介入對嬰兒行為狀態與調節是否有任何效果。從行為觀察及對音樂的反應顯示這類音樂能夠安撫嬰兒並讓他們表現出自我調節行為。未來仍需要進一步的研究來證實針對嬰兒反應的現場即興演奏豎琴音樂之效用及其在新生兒加護病房中各項音樂介入中的地位。在介紹音樂治療服務方面與經驗豐富的護理師合作是很值得的,他們能夠辨別出可能受益於音樂介入的嬰兒與家庭。


The Effects of Listening to Preferred Music on Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety amongst Elders in Residential Care: A Qualitative, Mixed Methods Study
This article presents the qualitative findings of a mixed-methods evaluation of the effects of listening to preferred music on depression and anxiety in older people in residential care. 117 participants were recruited from 9 care homes, all but one in Greater London. The homes varied in size and management style, and participants came from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. In addition to their usual routine, each participant listened to a daily 30-minute program of their preferred music for 3 weeks. Both quantitative and qualitative data relating to anxiety and depression were collected during once-weekly semi-structured interviews. Findings from the qualitative data showed that listening to preferred music resulted in relaxation, positive reminiscence, less depression and less boredom. Physical reactions, such as ‘chills’ or tears, demonstrated emotional arousal; others, such as foot-tapping were beneficial to the most disabled participants. The use of preferred and favorite music was the principal facilitator of its effectiveness, whilst declines in memory, confidence and energy were barriers to the research procedure. It was concluded that listening to preferred music can bring some relief to depression and anxiety amongst older care home residents but that not all will benefit to the same degree.

Efectos de la escucha de música preferida en Síntomas de Depresión y Ansiedad  en Adultos Mayores en Residencias Geriátricas; estudio cualitativo de métodos mixtos.
Este artículo presenta los hallazgos cualitativos de una evaluación de métodos mixtos sobre los efectos de la escucha de música preferida en adultos mayores con depresión y ansiedad en residencias geriátricas. Los 117 participantes fueron reclutados de 9 residencias, todas menos una en Greater London.  Las residencias variaban en tamaño y estilo de gerenciamiento, y los participantes provenían de distintos contextos socio-económicos. Como adicional a su rutina usual, cada participante escuchó diariamente un programa de 30 minutos de su música preferida durante 3 semanas. Tanto los datos cualitativos como cuantitativos relacionados a la ansiedad y la depresión fueron obtenidos durante una semana de entrevistas semi-estructuradas.
Los hallazgos de los datos cualitativos muestran que escuchar música preferida da como resultado; relajación, reminiscencias positivas, menos depresión y menor aburrimiento. Reacciones físicas, como escalofríos o lágrimas, demostraron un despertar emocional,  otras, como mover el pie sobre el piso fue beneficiosa para los participantes con más discapacidad. El uso de la música preferida o favorita fue el principal facilitador de esta efectividad, en tanto que la disminución de la memoria, la confianza y la energía fueron barreras para el procedimiento de investigación. Se concluyó que escuchar música favorita puede brindar cierto alivio a la depresión y a la ansiedad entre los residentes de hogares para adultos pero no todos podrán beneficiarse de la misma manera.

Die Wirkung des Hörens von gewünschter Musik auf  Depression und Angst bei älteren Menschen in einer Pflegeeinrichtung:  eine qualitative mixed-method Studie

Abstract: Dieser Artikel  beschreibt qualitative Ergebnisse einer mixed-method Evaluation der Effekte vom Hören gewünschter Musik auf Depression und Angst bei älteren Menschen, die in einer Pflegeeinrichtung leben. 117 Teilnehmer  aus 9 Pflegeheimen wurden rekrutiert, alle mit einer Ausnahme aus dem Großraum London. Die Heime unterschieden sich in Größe und Art der Führung, die Teilnehmer kamen von verschiedenen sozio-ökonomischen Schichten. Zusätzlich zur gewöhnlichen Routineversorgung hörte jeder Teilnehmer ein 30-Minuten-Programm  mit selbst ausgewählter Musik über einen Zeitraum von 3 Wochen
In einem semistrukturierten Interview wurden einmal pro Woche sowohl quantitative als auch qualitative Daten zu Angst und Depression gesammelt. Ergebnisse der Qualitativen Daten zeigten, dass das Hören selbst gewählter Musik zu Entspannung, positiven Erinnerungen, weniger Depression und weniger  Langeweile führte. Physisch Reaktionen wie Chills oder Tränen deuteten auf emotionale Erregung ; andere, wie mit den Füßen tappen, waren für die meist behinderten Teilnehmer wohltuend. Der Einsatz von bevorzugter und geliebter Musik war die größte Hilfe ihrer Wirksamkeit, während die Abnahme von Gedächtnis, Vertrauen und Energie eine  Grenze für die Durchführung der Forschung darstellte. Daraus wurde geschlossen, dass das Hören von gewünschter Musik älteren Heimbewohnern einige Erleichterung in Bezug auf Angst und Depression bringen kann, aber dass nicht alle im gleichen Maß davon profitieren.

Keywords: ältere Menschen; gewünschte Musik; Schmerz, Depression, Angst.

Modified Melodic Intonation Therapy for Acquired Non-Fluent Aphasia
For decades Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT) has shown good potential within the aphasia population, yet has seldom been used as a frontline treatment, rather placed within a myriad of treatment techniques utilized during aphasia therapy.  Debate continues regarding the mechanisms of change from MIT, both therapeutically and neurologically. Modified Melodic Intonation Therapy (MMIT) has developed through the work of Music Therapists, lessening the steps utilized in MIT to emphasize a more direct transfer to speech.  As the main focus of treatment for non-fluent aphasia, MMIT can be an effective means of language re-acquisition. This clinical report will discuss outcomes from seven clients with chronic non-fluent aphasia who received treatment from a home-based Music Therapy service.

Modificación de la Terapia de Entonación Melódica para la Afasia No-Fluida Adquirida
Por décadas la Terapia de Entonación Melódica (MIT) ha mostrado un buen potencial en la población con afasia, sin embargo no ha sido utilizada como tratamiento de primera línea, sino que se ha colocado dentro de un conjunto de tratamientos técnicos utilizados durante la terapia para afasia.  El debate continua con respecto a los mecanismos de cambio del MIT, tanto terapéutica como neurológicamente. La Terapia de Entonación Melódico Modificada (MMIT) se ha desarrollado a través del trabajo de Musicoterapeutas, disminuyendo los pasos utilizados en el MIT para enfatizar una transferencia más directa al habla. Como foco principal del tratamiento para la afasia no-fluente, el MMIT puede ser un medio eficaz para la re-adquisición del lenguaje. Este informe clínico analizará los resultados de siete clientes con afasia crónica no fluente que recibieron tratamiento domiciliario del servicio de Musicoterapia.

Modifizierte melodische Intonationstherapie  für erworbene non-fluent Aphasie.

Über Jahrzehnte hat  die Melodische Intonatiostherapie (MIT) gutes Potential  für die aphasische Bevölkerung gezeigt, sie wurde jedoch selten als wichtige Behandlungsmethode genutzt, sondern eher inmitten einer Vielzahl von Behandlungstechniken für Aphasiker plaziert. Die Debatte um therapeutische und neurologische Veränderungen durch MIT werden fortgesetzt. Die Modifizierte Melodische Intonationstherapie  (MIT) wurde durch die Arbeit von Musiktherapeuten entwickelt, die die Schritte der MIT verminderten um einen direkteren Transfer zur Sprache zu bewirken. Als Hauptfokus einer Behandlung von Aphasie kann die MIT ein effektives Mittel zur Wiedererlangung von Sprache darstellen. Dieser klinische Bericht diskutiert die Ergebnisse von sieben Klienten mit chronischer non-fluent Aphasie, die ihre Musiktherapiebehandlung zuhause bekamen.

 Environmental Music in a Hospital Setting: Exploring the Music-Making Process of Music Therapists and Performing Musicians

Background: The study is a qualitative study that explores the music making process of music therapists and musicians when provide environmental music therapy (EMT) and environmental music (EM) in hospital settings. Environmental Music Therapy (EMT) is an approach within the field of music therapy, utilized by trained, licensed professionals utilizing live music to address the physical, psychological, and cultural needs of patients, caregivers, and staff in the hospital environment. Environmental Music (EM) is defined as live music performed by musicians in public areas of hospitals typically on a volunteer basis. Both models might appear to be similar when being presented. The underlying differences need to be discussed.
Objective: This study explores the similarities and differences between musicians’ and music therapists’ process of the music-making process and its impact on the sound environment, patients, and caregivers.
Method: Interviews were conducted with 6 musicians providing EM and 5 music therapists providing EMT. Data were analyzed using a modified grounded theory approach.
Results: Results suggest that although music therapists were more specific with treatment goals, musicians consider their contributions to be beneficial to both the hospital environment and to the emotional states of individuals as well. Findings indicate music therapy and community music programs have value in this setting, often associated with anxiety and stress. Discussion includes considerations for collaborations between music therapists and musicians in the hospital setting.

Environmental Music in einem klinischen Setting: die  Untersuchung des Prozesses des Musizierens von Musiktherapeuten und  ausübenden Musikern.

Hintergrund:  Diese Studie ist eine qualitative Studie, die den Prozess des Musizierens von Musiktherapeuten und Musikern während Environmental Music Therapy (EMT) und Environmental Music (EM) in einem klinischen Setting untersucht. EMT ist eine musiktherapeutische Methode  die von ausgebildeten und lizensierten Professionellen ausgeübt wird, die live Musik dazu nutzen, die physischen, psychologischen und kulturellen Bedürfnisse der Patienten , Pflegenden und des Teams in der Klinik anzusprechen. EM bedeutet Live-Musik, die von Musikern in öffentlichen Bereichen der Kliniken, typischerweise auf der Basis von Volontären gespielt wird. Beide Modelle könnten ähnlich erscheinen, während sie  vorgeführt werden. Die zugrundeliegenden Unterschiede müssen diskutiert werden.
Ziel: Diese Studie untersucht die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen den Prozessen bei Musikern und Musiktherapeuten beim Prozess des Musizierens und den Einfluss auf die klangliche Umgebung, die Patienten und die Pflegenden.
Methode: Mit 6 EM-Musikern und 5 EMT-Musiktherapeuten wurden Interviews durchgeführt. Die Daten wurden mithilfe eines modifizierten Grounded-Theory  Ansatzes analysiert
Ergebnisse:  Die Ergebnisse lassen vermuten, dass obwohl  Musiktherapeuten spezifischer auf die Behandlungsziele eingingen, die Musiker betrachteten ihren Beitrag für beide, das klinische Umfeld und den emotionale Befindlichkeit der einzelnen, als wohltuend.  Die Ergebnisse weisen darauf hin, dass Musiktherapie und Community-Music-Programme ihren Wert haben in diesem Setting, das oft mit Angst und Stress assoziiert wird. Die Diskussion beinhaltet Überlegungen für eine Zusammenarbeit von Musiktherapeuten und Musikern in klinischen Setting.

Keywords: Musik und Medizin, Musik und Gesundheit, Environmental Music, Environmental Music Therapy, Community Music, Abstimmung, aufmerksames Zuhören.

Music Medicine’s Influence on Music Psychotherapy Practice with Traumatized Individuals

This article describes the key neurological findings that impact music psychotherapy practice. I will also contemplate whether such findings could provide a foundation for music psychotherapy.  Within the framework of music medicine research, this article will seek to strengthen and qualify rationale for the common acknowledgement of the ‘power of music,’ a phrase typically invoked to explain essential aspects of the music psychotherapy process. A neurological foundation may serve to support a grounded rationale in the utilization of how music can be best implemented within a music psychotherapy construct with clients. The article will introduce the following most essential neurological rationale supporting the therapeutic impact of music engagement, (music listening or music-making). The following premises pertain to music psychotherapy practices: 1) Music is multisensory and may stimulate various sensory areas, 2) Music may retrieve memories and evoke emotions, and 3) Music may elicit changes in hormones and neurotransmitters.

Influencia de la Medicina Musical en la práctica de Musicopsicoterapia con individuos traumatizados
Este artículo describe los principales hallazgos neurológicos que impactan sobre la práctica de la musicopsicoterapia. También se tendrá en cuenta si estos hallazgos pueden proporcionar bases para la musicopsicoterapia. Dentro del encuadre de la investigación médica en Música, este artículo buscará fortalecer y calificar de manera racional el conocimiento común del “poder de la música”, frase típica evocada para explicar los aspectos esenciales del proceso de la psicoterapia médica. La fundamentación neurológica puede servir para dar sustento a un basamento racional para una mejor forma de utilizar la música dentro del constructo de musicopsicoterapia con los clientes. Este artículo introducirá los basamentos neurológicos fundamentales más importantes que fundamentan el impacto terapéutico de la actividad musical (escucha y hacer musical).  Las siguientes premisas pertenecen a las practicas musicopsicoterapeuticas: 1) La Música es multisensorial y puede estimular varias áreas sensitivas, 2) La Música puede recuperar memorias y evocar emociones, y 3) La Música puede generar cambios hormonales y de los neurotransmisores.

Die Wirkung von MusikMedizin auf die psychotherapeutische Arbeit mit traumatisierten Menschen
Dieser Artikel beschreibt grundlegende neurologische Erkenntnisse,  die auf die musikpsychotherapeutische Praxis einwirken. Ich werde auch darüber nachdenken, inwieweit diese Ergebnisse eine Grundlage für Musik-Psychotherapie sein können.  Innerhalb des Rahmens der musik-medizinischen Forschung versucht dieser Artikel, die Begründungen für die allgemeine Anerkennung der „Macht von Musik“ zu finden und zu qualifizieren – das ist ein Satz, der immer wieder angeführt wird, um besondere  Aspekte des musik-psychotherapeutischen Prozess zu erklären. Die neurologischen Ausführungen dienen dazu, ein Grundprinzip zu finden, wie Musik am besten für ein Klienten- zentriertes musikpsycho-therapeutisches Konstrukt verwendet werden kann. Der Artikel beschreibt im Folgenden die wichtigsten neurologischen Grundprinzipien, die den therapeutischen Einfluss durch musikalisches Engagement unterstützen (Musik hören oder selber spielen). Die folgenden Prämissen betreffen die Praxis von Musiktherapie: 1) Musik ist multisensorisch und stimuliert verschiedene sensorische Bereiche, 2) Musik kann Erinnerungen zurückholen und Emotionen erwecken, und 3) Musik kann Veränderungen bei Hormonen und Neurotransmittern bewirken.

The Effects of Group singing on Affect in people with Parkinson’s Disease

There is increasing evidence of the benefits of music, in particular singing, for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Current research has primarily focused on vocal or motor symptoms. Our aim was to examine the immediate emotional effects of group singing in people with PD, and whether the type of music sung (familiar vs. unfamiliar songs) moderates these effects. We also explored whether differences in music reward modulate the emotional effects of group singing in people with PD.  11 participants with PD completed the Positive And Negative Affect Schedule in three conditions: immediately after group singing (1) familiar songs, (2) unfamiliar songs, and (3) no singing. They also completed the Barcelona Music Reward Questionnaire. Positive affect scores were higher in the singing (collapsed across familiar and unfamiliar songs) than no-singing condition. There was no significant difference in positive affect scores between the two singing conditions (familiar/unfamiliar songs). There was a positive but not statistically significant relationship between music reward and positive affect scores after singing. This study documents enhanced positive affect in people with PD immediately after group singing. This has clinical implications for the use of singing as a therapeutic intervention in people with PD.

Die Wirkung von Gruppensingen auf Patienten mit Parkinson
Es gibt eine wachsende Evidenz des positiven Einflusses von Musik auf Menschen mit Parkinson (PD), besonders durch Singen. Die aktuelle Forschung beschäftigt sich primär mit stimmlichen und motorischen Symptomen. Unser Ziel war, die unmittelbaren emotionalen Effekte des Gruppensingens auf Menschen mit PD zu untersuchen, und ob das Singen solcher Musik (bekannte vs. unbekannte Lieder) diese Effekte abmildern kann. Wir untersuchten außerdem, ob die Unterschiede bei Musik-Belohnung die emotionalen Effekte des Gruppensingens bei Menschen mit PD modulieren. 11 Teilnehmer mit PD durchliefen das Positive And Negative Affect Schedule in allen drei Bereichen: unmittelbar nach dem Singen in der Gruppe  von (1) bekannten Liedern, (2) unbekannte Lieder und (3) kein singen. Sie füllten das Barcelona Music Reward Questionnaire aus. Außerdem ergänzten sie, dass die positiven Affect Scores beim Singen höher lagen (schwankend zwischen bekannten und unbekannten Liedern) als ohne Singen. Es gab keinen signifikanten Unterschied im positiven Affect Score bei beiden Singbereichen (bekannte/unbekannte Lieder). Es gab eine positive aber statistisch nicht signifikante Beziehung zwischen Musik-Belohnung und den positiven Affect Scores nach dem Singen. Diese Studiendokumente übertreiben die positiven Affekte nach dem Gruppensingen bei Menschen mit PD. Dies hat klinische Implikationen für das Gruppensingen als therapeutische Intervention für Menschen mit PD.

Hay un aumento de evidencia de los beneficios de la música , en particular el canto , en personas con Enfermedad de Parkinson (EP). La siguiente investigación esta principalmente enfocada en los síntomas vocales y motores.  Nuestro objetivo es examinar el efecto emocional inmediato de el canto grupal en personas con EP , y determinar si los distintos tipos de música cantada (familiar versus no familiar) moderan estos efectos. También exploramos si las diferencias en la gratificación  musical modulan los efectos emocionales en el canto grupal de personas con EP. Los 11 participantes con EP completaron la Escala Afecto Positivo y Negativo en tres condiciones: inmediatamente después del canto grupal de 1) canciones familiares 2) canciones no familiares y 3) sin canto . También completaron el Cuestionario Barcelona de Gratificación Musical. Los sentimientos positivos puntuaron más alto en el canto (decreciendo a través de canciones familiares y no familiares) que en momentos sin cantar. No hubo cambios significativos en puntuación de sentimientos positivos entre los dos momentos de canto (canciones familiares y no familiares). Hubo una diferencia significativa positiva ,pero no estadística, entre la gratificación musical y las puntuaciones de sentimientos positivos luego del canto. Este estudio documenta las mejoras en los sentimientos positivos de personas con EP inmediatamente después de canto grupal. Esto tiene implicaciones clínicas para el uso del canto como una herramienta de intervención terapéutica  en personas con EP.

파킨슨(PD) 환자들에게 영향을 미치는 음악의 효과에 대한 근거가 증가하고 있다. 현재까지의 연구는 주로 목소리나 운동 신경 증상들에 포커스를 맞추었다. 본 연구에서는 PD 환자들의 정서에 집단 노래하기가 직접적으로 끼치는 영향과 부른 노래의 유형(친숙한 노래 vs 친숙하지 않은 노래)이 파킨슨 증상을 완화하는 지 여부를 조사하였다. 본 연구에서는 참여자가 느끼는 음악적 보상의 차이에 따라 집단 노래하기 중심의 중재에서의 PD 환자들의 정서에 미치는 영향의 여부를 조사하였다. 11명의 PD 환자들이 세 가지 조건에서 긍정적 정서 및 부정적 정서 목록(Positive And Negative Affect Schedule)을 작성했다. (1)친숙한 노래인 경우, (2)친숙하지 않은 노래를 부른 직후, 그리고 (3)노래를 부르지 않은 경우이다. 참여자는 본 연구에서 바르셀로나 음악 보상 질문지(Barcelona Music Reward Questionnaire)도 작성하였으며, 긍정적 정서 점수는 노래를 부르지 않는 조건보다 (친숙한 노래와 친숙하지 않은 노래 상관없이)노래를 부를 때 더 높게 나타났다. 두 가지의 노래하는 조건에서 긍정적 정서 점수에는 유의미한 차이가 없는 것으로 나타났다. 노래 후 긍정적 정서 점수와 음악 보상 사이에는 긍정적이지만 상관관계는 통계적으로 유의미하지 않은 결과를 나타냈다. 본 연구는 집단 노래하기 직후 향상된 PD 환자들의 긍정적 정서를 나타남을 보여주고 있으며, 이는 PD 환자들의 치료 중재법으로 노래하기 기법을 활용하는 것의 임상적 의의를 시사한다.

パーキンソン病患者(PD)ための音楽の有益性、特に歌唱のエビデンスは増加している。現行研究では、主に音声と運動性症状について注目している。我々の目的は、パーキンソン病患者の集団歌唱の即時的な感情的影響を調査すること、そして、どのようなタイプの歌唱(親しみのある歌vs.親しみのない歌)がそれらの効果を抑制するかどうか、であった。また、音楽報酬がパーキンソン病患者のグループで歌うことについての感情への影響に違いをもたらすかを調査した。11人のパーキンソン病の参加者は、集団歌唱の直後にPositive And Negative Affect Schedule を以下の3つの条件下で完了した:1) 親しみのある歌、2) 親しみのない歌、3) 歌唱なし。参加者はBarcelona Music Reward Questionnaireも完了した。ポジティブ感情のスコアは、歌唱ありが歌唱なしより高かった。親しみのある歌とない歌の間では、ポジティブ感情のスコアに有意差はなかった。歌唱後の音楽報酬とポジティブ感情スコアには肯定的な点はあったが、統計学的に有意な関係はなかった。本研究は集団歌唱直後のパーキンソン病患者のポジティブ感情向上を実証した。これはパーキンソン病患者への療法的介入としての歌唱使用の臨床的含意を持っている。


Heartbeat Recording and Composing in Perinatal Palliative Care and Hospice Music Therapy

Perinatal hospice care is an emerging area of practice for music therapists. Perinatal hospice care offers multidimensional support for pregnant women whose infants have been diagnosed with a terminal or life-limiting illness . Music therapists are increasingly being employed in settings that offer services for pediatric patients with terminal illness. Recent research has suggested that creating music and/or song legacy projects in pediatric palliative care may offer multidimensional support for families coping with anticipatory grief and/or bereavement. Legacy project interventions may include song dedications, music and song legacies, musical autobiographies, Therapeutic Music Videos (TMV), and/or original compositions. Music therapy interventions that incorporate legacy work may include listening to live receptive music, music combined with other modalities (e.g. movement or art), or music-assisted counseling . Families have reported a number of benefits from this process, including strengthened connections with loved ones, creating meaningful shared experiences, serving as a catalyst for difficult conversations surrounding the death, providing insight during bereavement, transforming families’ perceptions of adversity, and creating continuing bonds with the deceased.



Aufnahmen von Herzschlag und Komposition in der perinatalen Palliativversorgung und der Hospiz-Musiktherapie
Die perinatale Hospizversorgung ist ein wachsendes Praxisfeld für Musiktherapeuten. Die perinatale Hospizversorgung bietet multidimensionale Unterstützung für schwangere Frauen, bei deren Kindern eine terminale und lebensbegrenzende Krankheit diagnostiziert wurde. Musiktherapeuten werden immer öfter eingestellt in Settings, die pädiatrischen Patienten mit terminaler Krankheit Unterstützung anbieten. Eine neuere  Forschung empfiehlt, den Familien in der palliativen Versorgung über Erinnerungsprojekte mit Musik u/o Lied eine multidimensionale Unterstützung anzubieten, um antizipatorisch Trauer u/o einem Trauerfall zu bewältigen. Erinnerungsbezogene Interventionsprojekte können gewidmete Musik und Lieder, musikalische Autobiographien, therapeutische Musikvideos (TMV) u/o Kompositionen beinhalten. Musiktherapeutische Interventionen, die Erinnerungsarbeit einbeziehen, können auch Hören zu Livemusik, Musik kombiniert mit anderen Modalitäten (z.B. Bewegung oder Kunst) oder musik-assistierte Beratung beinhalten. Familien berichteten über vielfältigen Nutzen aus diesem Prozess, was die Stärkung der Verbindung mit geliebten Menschen oder das Schaffen bedeutungsvoller geteilter Erinnerungen einschließt; dieser Prozess dient zudem als Katalysator für schwierige Unterhaltungen um Tod, vermitteln von Einsicht bei einem Trauerfall, er transformiert die Sicht der Familien in Bezug auf Ablehnung und schafft dauerhafte Bindung mit dem Sterbenden.

Este ofrece sostén multidimensional para las mujeres embarazadas cuyos bebes han sido diagnosticados con enfermedades terminales o limitantes para la vida. Cada vez más se emplean a musicoterapeutas en settings que ofrecen servicios para pacientes pediátricos con enfermedades terminales. Investigaciones recientes sugieren que la creación musical y/o los proyectos de canción legado en cuidados paliativos pediátricos pueden ofrecer sostén multidimensional para familias que enfrentan el dolor anticipatorio y/o duelo. El proyecto de intervenciones de legado puede incluir canciones dedicadas, música y canciones como legado, autobiografías musicales, Videos Musicales Terapéuticos y/o composiciones originales. Las intervenciones musicoterapéuticas que incorporan trabajo sobre el legado pueden incluir escucha receptiva de música en vivo, música combinada con otras modalidades (por ejemplo arte o movimiento) o counseling de asistencia musical. Las familias han reportado numerosos beneficios de este proceso, incluyendo fortalecimiento de las conexiones con los seres queridos , creación de experiencias compartidas significativas , catalizador de las conversaciones difíciles acerca de la muerte , proporcionando insight durante el duelo , transformación de las percepciones familiares sobre la adversidad y creando  lazos continuos con el fallecido.

Differential effects of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 on Blood Pressure and
Heart rate: A Prospective Controlled Study

Background There is little known about whether or not music of varying styles can directly alter blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) in humans. We studied the potential effects of Bach’s orchestral Suite No. 3 in comparison to silence (S [controls CO]) on BP and HR.
Objective: To analyze the effect of different music styles (intervention group) on BP, HR, S compared to S (control group). Method: 120 volunteers aged 25-75 years were randomly assigned in the intervention group (n=60) or to a control group (n=60). Interventional music styles were the different parts of Bach’s Suite No. 3, BWV 1068 [Overture, Air, Gavotte, Bourrée, Gigue]). 60 healthy volunteers served as a control group (CO): they underwent an identical study protocol but without music application.Results: In studied volunteers, systolic, diastolic BP (mm Hg) and HR (min-1) decreased when Bach was played compared to CO (p<0.001). Prior to the study BPsyst was 128.3+11.3 mm Hg, BPdiast was 81.9+7.9 Hg and HR was 75.3+12.0 bpm. After sound exposure or in CO the following results were observed (table). *p<0.001, ap=0.01, bp=0.08
BPsyst (mm Hg)           BPdiast (mm Hg)          HR (min-1)
Overture           120.9+12.4*                76.9+8.8*                    69.8+11.2*
Air                   121.1+12.4*                77.1+7.9*                    68.4+9.4*
Gavotte            120.9+12.6*                77.0+8.9*                    68.5+9.8*
Bourrée            120.6+13.7*                76.5+9.4*                    66.4+8.4*

Differentielle Effekte der Orchestersuite No 3 von Bach auf Blutdruck und Herzrate: eine prospektive kontrollierte Studie
Hintergrund: Es ist wenig darüber bekannt, ob Musik aus unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen beim Menschen Blutdruck (BP) und Herzschlag (HR) direkt verändern kann oder nicht. Wir untersuchten die potentialen Effekte der Bach’schen Orchestersuite No 3 im Vergleich mit Stille (S [controls CO]) auf BP und HR.
Ziel: war, den Effekt unterschiedlicher Musikstile (Interventionsgruppe) auf BP, HR, S verglichen mit S (Kontrollgruppe) zu analysieren.
Methode: 120 Freiwillige zwischen 25–75 Jahren wurden randomisiert der Interventionsgruppe (n=60) oder der Kontrollgruppe (n=60) zugewiesen. Die Interventionsmusik waren verschiedene Teil aus der Suite No 3 von Bach, BWV 1068 [Ouvertüre, Air, Gavotte, Bourrée, Gigue]. 60 gesunde Freiwillige dienten als Kontrollgruppe (CO): sie durchliefen ein identisches Studienprotokoll,  aber ohne Musik. Ergebnisse: beiden Studienteilnehmern nahm der diastolische BP (mm Hg) und die HR (min-1) im Vergleich zur CO ab, wenn Bach gespielt wurde (p<0.001). Vor der Studie war der systolische BP, 128.3 +11.3 mm Hg. Der diastolische BP war 81.9+7.9 Hg und die HR war 75.3+12.0 bpm.
Nach der Klangexposition oder bei der CO wurde folgendes beobachtet (s.Table): *p<0.001, ap=0.01, bp=0.08

Efectos Diferenciales de la Suite No. 3 de Bach en Presión Sanguínea y Ritmo Cardiaco.

Background: Hay poco conocimiento sobre si los diferentes estilos musicales pueden alterar o no directamente la presión sanguínea (PS) y el ritmo cardiaco (RC) en seres humanos. Nosotros estudiamos los efectos potenciales de la Suite Orquestal de Bach Nro. 3 en comparación con silencio (S [control CO]) en PS y RC.
Objetivo: Analizar los efectos de diferentes estilos musicales (intervención grupal) en PS , RC , S comparando con S (grupo control). Método: 120 voluntarios de entre 25 y 75 años que fueron aleatoriamente asignados al grupo de intervención (n=60) o al grupo control (n=60). Los estilos de intervención musical eran diferentes partes de la Suite Nro. 3 de Bach, BWV 1068 [Overtura , Air , Gavotta, Bourre , Gigue] . 60 voluntarios saludables sirvieron como grupo de control (GC); ellos realizaron un estudio de protocolo idéntico pero sin la aplicación de la música.
Resultados: En los voluntarios estudiados la PS sistólica y diastólica (mm Hg) y el RC (min-1) disminuyo cuando la música de Bach sonaba comparado con el GC (p<0.001). Antes del estudio la PS sistólica era de 128.3+11.3 mm Hg. La PS diastólica era de 81.9+7.9 Hg y el RC era de 75.3+12.0 bpm. Luego de la exposición o en el GC estos fueron los resultados observados (tabla) *p<0.001, ap=0.01,bp=0.08BPsyst (mm Hg) BPdiast (mm Hg) HR (min-1) Overture 120.9+12.4*  76.9+8.8* 69.8+11.2* Air 121.1+12.4* 77.1+7.9* 68.4+9.4* Gavotte 120.9+12.6* 77.0+8.9* 68.5+9.8* Bourrée 120.6+13.7* 76.5+9.4* 66.4+8.4* Gigue 120.4+15.2* 78.5+11.1* 68.1+9.2*Controles 120.6+8.7a 75.4+5.5b 78.8+11.9*

Conclusiones: Los resultados proveen clara evidencia del potencial de la música de Bach para influenciar los parámetros cardiovasculares. Todas las partes de la Suite nro 3 llevaron a la baja de valores de PS y RC . En el grupo control no se observaron resultados similares.

바흐 관현악곡 3번이 혈압과 심장 박동에 끼치는 영향
배경: 다양한 스타일의 음악이 인간의 혈압(BP)와 심장박동(HR)의 직접적 변화를 유도한다는 보고는 미흡하다. 본 연구는 침묵이 유지되는 상황(아무런 소리 자극이 없는 상황)(S, 통제 CO)이 BP와 HR에 끼치는 영향과 비교해서 바흐의 관현악곡 3번이 BP와 HR에 끼치는 영향에 대해 비교 연구하였다.

목표: 연구목표는 S(통제 집단)과 비교해서 각기 다른 음악 스타일(실험 집단)이 BP, HR, S에 미치는 영향을 분석하는 것이다. 실험에 사용된 음악은 바흐 관현악곡 3번, BWV 1068의 각기 다른 부분들(Overture, Air, Gavotte, Bourree, Gigue)이었다. 본 연구의 대상자는 총 120명이며, 연령은 25-75세이다. 참여자중 60명은 실험 집단에, 나머지 60명은 통제 집단에 배정되었으며, 실험 집단에는 음악 프로토콜이 사용되었으며, 통제 집단에는 음악 프로토콜이 사용되지 않았다.

결과: 통제 집단과 비교했을 때 바흐의 음악 감상을 경험한 실험 집단 참여자들의 심장 수축, 확장 BP와 HR은 감소하였다. 실험 전 BP 수축은 128.3+11.3mg Hg, BP 확장은 81.9+7.9 Hg였으며, HR은 75.3+12.0 bpm으로 나타났다.

결론: 본 연구 결과는 바흐의 음악 스타일이 심혈관 매개변수들에 영향을 끼칠 가능성에 대해 분명한 증거를 제공하고 있다. 관현악곡 3번의 모든 부분은 BP와 HR의 수치 감소에 유의미한 영향을 미침을 보고하였다.

Music and Medicine in Spain: History and New Developments of a Growing Discipline

The strong link between music and medicine has been documented in Spain since the 17th century, showing that the therapeutic effects of music have been known for centuries. The development of music therapy as a scientific, independent discipline on the Iberian peninsula begins in the 1960s due to the pioneering work of Serafina Poch. Since then, the interest in music and medicine both by specialists and public has constantly increased. Nowadays, music therapy is taught in public universities and private institutions, and a growing number of health care and educational centers is implementing music therapy projects each year, producing also an increase in the research on the subject. A sore point, which we hope can be resolved soon, is that music therapy in Spain has not yet been recognized with an official title and as an independent profession, leading to fragmentation of the field and leaving the door open to professional intrusion.

Musik und Medizin in Spanien: Geschichte und neue Entwicklung einer wachsenden Disziplin
Die starke Verbindung zwischen Musik und Medizin wird in Spanien seit dem 17. Jahrhundert dokumentiert, was zeigt, dass der therapeutische Effekt seit Jahrhunderten bekannt ist. Die Entwicklung von Musiktherapie als einer wissenschaftlichen, unabhängigen Disziplin auf der Iberischen Halbinsel beginnt in den 1960er Jahren mit der Pionierarbeit von Serafina Poch. Seit dieser Zeit wuchs das Interesse an Musik und Medizin bei Spezialisten und in der Öffentlichkeit zunehmend. Heute wird  Musiktherapie an öffentlichen Universitäten und privaten Institutionen unterrichtet. Eine zunehmende Anzahl von Gesundheits- und Ausbildungszentren implementieren jedes Jahr neue Musiktherapieprojekte, und bewirken damit auch eine Zunahme von Forschungen in diesem Bereich. Ein wunder Punkt, den wir hoffen, bald zu bewältigen ist, dass Musiktherapie in Spanien noch nicht mit einem offiziellen Titel und als unabhängiger Beruf anerkannt wird, das führt zur beruflichen Fragmentierung und lässt die Tür für berufliche Besitzstörung offen.

自十七世紀以來,西班牙的文獻就已記載音樂與醫學間的密切連結,這顯示出音樂的治療效果已為人所知幾個世紀。而音樂治療在伊比利亞半島作為科學及一門獨立學科的發展則在先驅Serafina Poch的努力下開啟於1960年代。自此以後,專家與大眾對音樂與醫學的興趣不斷增加。現在,公立大學與私立學院皆有教授音樂治療,而每一年都有越來越多的健康照護與教育中心實施音樂治療,連帶使得此一主題的研究日益增加。然而,目前有個亟待盡速解決的問題,那就是在西班牙音樂治療的稱號以及作為一個獨立的專業都尚未被官方認可,導致此一領域的分散,並使得專業被侵犯。

스페인의 음악과 의학: 성장하는 학문 분야의 새로운 발전과 역사
음악과 의학 사이에 존재하는 강력한 연관관계는 17세기 이후 스페인에서 기록되어왔으며, 이는 음악의 치료 효과가 수세기 동안 알려져 왔다는 것을 보여주는 것이라 할 수 있다. Serafina Poch의 선구적인 연구에 기인하여 1960년대부터 이베리아 반도에서 과학적이고 독립적인 학문 분야로 음악 치료가 발전하기 시작한다. 이후, 전문가들과 대중이 음악과 의학에 갖는 관심은 계속해서 증가해왔고, 최근에는 공립 대학과 사립 기관에서의 음악치료 교육이 확대되고 있으며, 점차 많은 의료 및 교육 센터들이 매년 음악치료 프로젝트를 시행하고, 그 주제에 대한 연구도 증가하고 있다. 반면, 스페인에서 음악치료가 아직 공식적 명칭 및 제도하에 독립적인 직종으로 인정받지 못하는 부분의 현실적 제약이 있음을 고찰함과 동시에 이것이 음악치료와 관련한 분야에서 치료사들의 분열 및 직업으로서의 음악치료사의 발전을 저해할 수 있음에 대해 고찰하였다.

When the Composer Has PTSD: Examining the Life of George Lloyd (1919-1998)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can impair cognitive function, attention, memory, mood, initiative, human relationships and self-esteem. Music therapy has been used help to ameliorate some of these problems. Although there is literature on music and PTSD, there is scant information on the musician-composer with PTSD, the process of recovery, and the connections between composition, PTSD and neurocognitive function. Presented here is an account of George Lloyd, a highly regarded young English composer in the 1930s. Following severe trauma in World War II, Lloyd’s ability to compose suffered greatly for many years. He took a professional detour into market gardening to recover his health and then subsequently rehabilitated his musical career. Lessons learned from Lloyd’s life are described both in relation to approaches he used to achieve recovery from PTSD. A more general question of composition’s potential therapeutic effects in light of recent cognitive neuroscience will be considered.

Wenn der Komponist PTSD hat: Das Leben von George Lloyd (1919-1998)
Eine Posttraumatische Belastungsstörung (PTSD) kann kognitive Funktionen, Gedächtnis, Stimmung, Initiative, menschliche Beziehungen und Selbstvertrauen beeinträchtigen. Musiktherapie wird angewandt, um einige dieser Probleme zu verbessern. Obwohl Literatur über Musik und PTSD existiert, gibt es kaum Informationen über den Musiker und Komponisten, den Prozess der Genesung und die Verbindung zwischen Komposition, PTSD und neurokognitive Funktionen.  Hier nun ein Bericht über George Lloyd, einen hoch geschätzten jungen englischen Komponist aus den 1930er Jahren. Nach einem schweren Trauma aus dem 2. Weltkrieg litt Lloyds Fähigkeit zu komponieren über viele Jahre sehr. Er nahm einen beruflichen Umweg über die Gärtnerei, um seine Gesundheit wieder herzustellen und sukzessive seine Musikalische Karriere zu rehabilitieren. Die Lektionen, die man aus Lloyds leben lernen kann, sind beschrieben in Relation zu den Methoden, die er benützte, um PTSD zu heilen. Als allgemeine Frage zum kompositorischen Potential werden die therapeutischen Effekte im Licht der neueren kognitiven Neurowissenschaft betrachtet.

El stress post traumático (SPT) puede perjudicar las funciones cognitivas , atención , memoria , estado de ánimo , iniciativa , relaciones humanas ,y autoestima . La musicoterapia ha sido usada para ayudar a mejorar algunos de estos problemas. A pesar de que hay literatura sobre música y SPT, hay poca información sobre compositores musicales con SPT , el proceso de recuperación  y las conexiones entre las composiciones , el SPT y las funciones neurocognitivas. Aquí presentamos el caso de George Lloyd , un gran galardonado joven compositor Ingles de 1930. Luego de un trauma severo en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la habilidad de Lloyd para componer se vio alterada por muchos años. Tomo un desvió profesional dedicándose a la jardinería para recuperar su salud y subsecuentemente rehabilitar su carrera musical . La lección que aprendemos de la vida de Lloyd son descriptas ambas en relación a los abordajes que uso para recuperarse de su SPT. Un cuestionamiento más genérico de los efectos potencialmente terapéuticos de la composición serán considerados a las luz de la neurociencia cognitiva actual .

創傷後壓力症候群(PTSD)會損害認知功能、注意力、記憶力、情緒、主動性、人際關係及自尊。音樂治療已被用來幫助改善其中一些問題。雖然現在已經有關於音樂和創傷後壓力症候群的研究文獻,但是關於患有PTSD的音樂作曲家的資訊仍然很少,像是復原的歷程以及PTSD神經認知功能和作品之間的連結。在這裡所介紹的喬治‧勞埃德(George Lloyd),是一位在1930年代備受推崇的年輕英國作曲家。在第二次世界大戰嚴重創傷後好幾年,勞埃德的創作能力受到很大的影響。他在專業的路上繞道改行從事園藝,直到恢復健康後才繼續音樂作曲家的生涯。文中描述關於從勞埃德的生活中汲取到的經驗都與他用來恢復PTSD的方法有關。本文也將考慮最近的認知神經科學中,一個較為一般性的問題,即作曲的潛在治療效果。

PTSD를 가진 작곡가  George Lloyd의 삶에 대한 조사(1919-1998)
외상후 스트레스 장애(PTSD)는 인지 기능, 주의력, 기억, 기분, 자주성, 인간관계와 자존감을 손상시킬 수 있다. 음악 치료는 이러한 문제들의 개선을 돕는 데 사용되어왔다. 현재까지 음악과 PTSD에 대한 연구들이 보고되고 있으나, PTSD를 가진 음악가-작곡가, 회복 과정, 그리고 작곡, PTSD, 신경 인지 기능 사이에 존재하는 연관관계에 대한 정보는 부족하다. 본 연구에서는 1930년대 가장 존경받던 젊은 영국 작곡가인 George Lloyd를 중심으로 PTSD에 대한 접근을 제시한다. Lloyd는 세계 2차 대전에서 심각한 트라우마를 겪은 후, Lloyd의 작곡 능력은 수년 동안 크게 저하되었다. 그는 자신의 건강을 회복하기 위해 원예로 직종을 변경하였고, 이후 음악 직업으로 복귀하였다. Lloyd가 PTSD에서 회복하기 위해 사용했던 접근법들과 관련해서 그의 삶에서 얻은 교훈들을 기술하였다. 본 연구는 최근 인지 신경 과학에 비추어서 작곡의 잠재적 치료 효과에 대한 보다 보편적 질문에 대한 제안을 보고하였다.

Bodywork: Tuning the Instrument of the Soul

Instrumental musicians are among groups of professionals who are at high risk for overuse injuries, including pain, fatigue, loss of range of motion, as well as loss of endurance and fine motor control.[i] Factors contributing to overuse injuries include, but are not limited to, ergonomic errors and posture misalignment due to poor fit between instrument and musician, heavy instruments, as well as repetitive strain due to prolonged daily practice and/or performance.[ii] Massage therapy may target musician specific injuries by focusing on relaxing restrictive, overused muscles, enhancing circulation, and improving range of motion by increasing length of fascia and muscles, and breaking down adhesions.[iii]  The following article describes the innovative work of Dorothy Stein who has developed novel approaches in massage therapy that have been applied with musicians of all disciplines.
