What are we waiting for? Anticipating the second edition of The Handbook of Music Therapy by Bunt, Hoskyns and Swamy

Daphne Rickson

ABSTRACT

This report, based on a conversation with all three editors, provides a tantalising glimpse into the upcoming second edition of The Handbook of Music Therapy, edited by Leslie Bunt, Sarah Hoskyns and Sangeeta Swamy. The editors are enthusiastic about their collaboration and the resulting expansion of the original text. They describe how they have responded to prolific and widespread developments in music therapy theory, practice and research by working with both original and new chapter authors. These authors bring a variety of perspectives articulated in ways that will speak to music therapists, music therapy students and other professionals.
