This is an anthology of the latest research into assessment methods in music therapy. Based on the findings of members of the International Music Therapy Assessment Consortium (IMTAC), it covers issues such as the standardisation of robust assessment tools, the assessment models currently in use, and how to implement them in a clinical setting.
As the use of music therapy becomes more widespread so too does the need for detailed assessment. Standardised assessment tools, and knowledge of how to integrate assessment into clinical practice, are needed for teaching, research and clinical purposes all around the world.

Looking at the available assessment tools holistically, the book covers the major assessment models currently used in clinical practice, and details each model's setting and motivation, development, theoretical background, and how to implement it in a clinical setting.
