This symposium marks a milestone toward renewing the dialogue between the professions of music and medicine. The papers presented in this volume represent the latest research by music educators, music therapists, medical doctors, psychologists and others in the allied health professions. The central focus of this research shows that music indeed is at the core of the rehabilitative process. This book opens the door to this fascinatingly different view of interaction between these two disciplines. Co-published with Music Education for the Handicapped, Inc.
