International Dictionary of Music Therapy

June 13, 2013

Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Kirkland on the publication of the International Dictionary of Music Therapy.  Kevin is the editor of the new publication and he is also a faculty member with the Capilano University Bachelor of Music Therapy program.

The dictionary is an exciting addition to the Music Therapy literature given it includes contributions from therapists and different Music Therapy approaches around the world.   This is the first published dictionary for the discipline of Music Therapy.  A few Capilano interns (Andrea Cave, Julie Lytle and Melissa Telford) and a few faculty were also contributors to the more than 450 terms.

The International Dictionary of Music Therapy can be purchased through Routledge Publishers.  Kevin is also co-author of Full Circle: Spiritual Therapy for the Elderly, and is a past Editor for the Canadian Journal of Music Therapy.
