Empowerment and empowering self: using creative music therapy to reconnect premature infants and their mothers


Haslbeck, Friederike (2015). Empowerment and empowering self: using creative music therapy to reconnect premature infants and their mothers. In: Dileo, Cheryl. Advanced Practice in Medical Music Therapy: Case Reports. unbekannt: Jeffrey Books, 20-32.

Abstract

This case study provides a description of the use of music therapy in the treatment of a baby girl, a poor feeder born extremely prematurely, and her mother. Creative music therapy promoted the sucking abilities of the girl and helped increase the sensitivity of the mother during interactions with her daughter. By experiencing inter-subjectivity in music, both the daughter and mother were empowered to relax, stabilize, and identify a common rhythm. Music therapy offered a “place to meet in music,” an opportunity for them to create and experience intimate, emotional reconnection even within an intensive care environment.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
