This important book is a rich and diverse compendium of approaches to the evolving practice of Guided Imagery and Music. The editors, Denise Grocke and Torben Moe, have assembled a group of international writers who demonstrate the transformative potential of GIM and how the method can be modified and adapted in individual and group work in a wide range of settings. -- Leslie Bunt, Professor in Music Therapy, The University of the West of England, Bristol, UK and GIM practitioner and primary trainer Music can have a life changing effect and can be used for therapeutic purposes. Guided Imagery and Music (GIM), humanistic in outlook and informed by scientific research, is a method in which you listen to music in a relaxed state and explore the feelings and images that are evoked. Twenty individual and group adaptations of the method, developed for a range of psychosomatic and psychiatric populations and age groups, are presented here. A section is devoted to the development of music used in different clinical contexts. -- Dr Dag Koerlin, MD, PhD, Senior Consultant in Psychiatry, Primary trainer of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) Denise Grocke and Torben Moe have produced a timely gem of a book. With its wide diversity, it demonstrates the enormous creativity of GIM therapists who have modified and adapted Helen Bonny's method of Guided Imagery and Music for their clients. This is a collection of articles by GIM practitioners from around the world working with a broad spectrum of clientele, from the young to the elderly, from addressing workplace issues to treating long term clinical conditions. For all students and practitioners of GIM, this is essential reading. It is also highly informative for anyone interested in the transformative power of music and imagery. -- Liz Moffitt, MA, MTA, Fellow and Primary Trainer, AMI, Professor Emeritus, Capilano University, Vancouver, Canada This book is immensely useful. The authors offer invaluable ideas about how to apply methods of intentional music listening in a variety of settings and populations, both individually and in groups. This volume is a rich resource to reflect on and examine focused music listening as a resource to support life itself. -- Gro Trondalen, PhD, SET, CMT, Fellow of AMI, Professor of Music Therapy, Director of Centre for Music and Health, Norwegian Academy of Music
