Factors that influence therapeutic outcome in music therapy can be related to attendance and participation as well as characteristics of both the client and therapist. Researchers and clinicians have developed numerous taxonomies to describe mechanisms responsible for therapeutic change. Understanding mechanisms of therapeutic change allow the therapist to program for, implement, and identify and use these factors to enhance therapeutic outcome. Cognitive factors potentially influencing therapeutic change are universalization, insight, and modeling. Affective factors potentially influencing therapeutic change are acceptance, altruism, and transference. Behavioral factors potentially influencing therapeutic change are reality testing, ventilation, and interaction

Keywords:   therapeutic outcome, music therapy, change, mechanism, universalization, acceptance, altruism, ventilation, interaction, reality testing
