      Bruscia, Kenneth E.; Brooks, Darlene M.; Folio, Cynthia (Temple University. Libraries, 2012)
      The purpose of this study is to describe current practices in Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy (NRMT) practice as perceived by contemporary practitioners in 2011 compared with the original approach as developed by its founders. I did this by interviewing prominent NR music therapists in the field, and asking them how their way of practicing compared to hobelieved Nordoff and Robbins originally practiced the model. I then transcribed and analyzed their responses to the interview questions, looking for themes of commonality and difference in their responses.
