EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This enlightening text promotes listening to music as a rewarding component in the psychotherapeutic consultation. Unlike other guides on the topic, this book encourages the choice of music to come from the patient, rather than being prescribed by the therapist. The comprehensive approach considers both theoretical and practical application, in any therapy setting, with a specific focus on children and adults who have suffered emotional trauma in early childhood. Featuring interviews from spiritual leaders, therapists, musicians and poets, the book explores the personal importance of listening to music and discovering how that music can bring on strong emotions and reinforce feelings. Listening to Music in Psychotherapy is a practical guide that is invaluable for psychotherapists, counsellors and music therapists. Healthcare professionals with an interest in music therapy will also find it of great interest, as will course leaders and students in psychology, counselling and psychotherapy.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Listening according to mood is likely to be what most people do when they listen to music. We want to take part in, or even be part of, the emerging world of the musical work. Using the sources of musical history and philosophy, Erik Wallrup explores this extremely vague and elusive phenomenon, which is held to be fundamental to musical hearing. Wallrup unfolds the untold musical history of the German word for ‘mood’, Stimmung, which in the 19th century was abundant in the musical aesthetics of the German-Austrian sphere. Martin Heidegger’s much-discussed philosophy of Stimmung is introduced into the field of music, allowing Wallrup to realise fully the potential of the concept. Mood in music, or, to be more precise, musical attunement, should not be seen as a peculiar kind of emotionality, but that which constitutes fundamentally the relationship between listener and music. Exploring mood, or attunement, is indispensable for a thorough understanding of the act of listening to music.
