Abstract/Summary The use of voicework in music therapy is emerging as an approach that requires specific attention in the literature, and the preceding chapters demonstrate its application on a global scale. Our authors are from the Australasian region (Australia, Korea, and Japan), Europe (Denmark, the Netherlands), and North America and Canada. The approaches are as diverse as the clients who are treated; they may be structured, semistructured, or unstructured and involve wordless and /or text-based voicework. The following chapter provides an integrated discussion of the work described by this new generation of researchers/clinicians who focus on the voice as a unique tool for therapeutic change. We examine the populations and the rationale for using voicework. The chapter then provides a review of the theoretical models and key concepts underpinning the work as well as an overview of how health and the therapy process are understood. The remaining part of this chapter presents the methods, including some definitions and overviews of the approaches, as well as the role of the therapist, the therapist's voice, and the client's voice. We conclude by presenting a model of voicework in music therapy that encompasses the approaches contained in this book and in the work of others. Finally, implications for future training and the areas of research needed to expand this field of music therapy are outlined.
