What a thrill to find a copy of this new book, The in the newly published book, Treatment Planning for Music Therapy Cases by Anita Gadberry, Ph.D., MT-BC, in my mailbox. It’s a great book because Dr. Gadberry does an excellent job of breaking down the process of creating treatment plans (i.e. standards of clinical practice) for music therapy clients. In addition, the reader/music therapist gets to read case study chapters that illustrate real clinical practice scenarios and Gadberry facilitates recognition and mastery of the various competencies that go along with good practice. Also, personally, I participated in this book by writing a chapter entitled “Planning and Treatment for a Client who has been a Victim of Sexual Abuse”.

I couldn’t resist taking a self portrait with my copy – what a thrill to participate!
