‘The first time ever I saw your face…’: Music therapy for depressed mothers and their infants
This chapter discusses the use of music therapy to help depressed mothers and their infants. The natural interactive element of music provides mothers who are depressed with a non-verbal means by which they may connect with their baby. Equally, the temporal nature of music, allows for sensitive and empathic attunement to be developed in the moment between therapist and mother, therapist and child, and mother and child.
