Item Type:Article
Additional Information:The paper explores some of the benefits and potential risks of engaging with creative therapies. The key contribution of the paper is in relating the use of music therapy and other creative therapies to issues of identity. A central argument of the paper is that creative identity represents both a resource and a limit on health and wellbeing; identity therefore needs to be at the heart of theoretically informed research into the impact of alternative and creative therapies.
