Recent music therapy advances and evidence-based practices have earned respect within the medical sciences and garnered popularity amongst users and practitioners. While integrative medicine treats the whole patient with ayurvedic and allopathic medicine, music therapy provides a safe and effective way of managing stress, pain, unpleasant symptoms, response to illness, and treatment side effects, and has been proven to enhance patients’ quality of life and general wellbeing. Exploring the ways in which these methods have been practised throughout history, the author takes readers on a journey from illness to wellness, and shows how this can be guided through music. The book instructs music therapists and other practitioners in the use of specific techniques, providing examples of clinical applications. It includes activities that prepare a music therapist physically, emotionally and musically for this journey with another, and provides case studies to explore the difficulties that might arise.

Raw Coping Power: From Stress to Thriving explores new ways to address the growing problem of stress in society and the workplace. It is both a practical guidebook and resource for anyone interested in mastering stress, including individuals, groups, workplaces, and those who serve them (such as coaches, counselors, trainers, and therapists). Each individual has an innate capacity to transform stress into an opportunity for thriving and flourishing. Stress is both a friend and teacher. We can tap into this truth through reminders, a certain vision, and practice of simple tools. And Raw Coping Power provides all of these with specific encouragement to use over 30 exercises in the tool section. The chapter on the 7 Principles first establishes a foundation of knowledge—with different maps borrowed from research. Each principle is discussed with examples, giving readers confidence that our mind-body system is designed to transform instead of succumb to stress. The next chapter translates research from 10 different areas of modern science including neuroplasticity, post-traumatic growth, resilience, social capital, and the author’s own studies on team wellness. The Tool chapter gives readers simple exercises, most of which can be completed in 10 minutes and systematically designed to tap into our capacity for resilience. The purpose and background of each tool is described and specific steps are given that make these easy to use. A Resource section also gives many different tips on where and how to get additional help. Much of Raw Coping Power is based in scientific research and a Notes section gives additional citations and capsule clarifications for studies and other references used. A list of definitions also makes this a very useful tool for communicating this innovative approach to audiences who are looking to see stress in a whole new and positive light.

Integration of complementary and alternative medicine therapies (CAM) with conventional medicine is occurring in hospitals and physicians offices, health maintenance organizations (HMOs) are covering CAM therapies, insurance coverage for CAM is increasing, and integrative medicine centers and clinics are being established, many with close ties to medical schools and teaching hospitals. In determining what care to provide, the goal should be comprehensive care that uses the best scientific evidence available regarding benefits and harm, encourages a focus on healing, recognizes the importance of compassion and caring, emphasizes the centrality of relationship-based care, encourages patients to share in decision making about therapeutic options, and promotes choices in care that can include complementary therapies where appropriate. Numerous approaches to delivering integrative medicine have evolved. Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the United States identifies an urgent need for health systems research that focuses on identifying the elements of these models, the outcomes of care delivered in these models, and whether these models are cost-effective when compared to conventional practice settings. It outlines areas of research in convention and CAM therapies, ways of integrating these therapies, development of curriculum that provides further education to health professionals, and an amendment of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act to improve quality, accurate labeling, research into use of supplements, incentives for privately funded research into their efficacy, and consumer protection against all potential hazards.
