Professor and Director of Music Therapy Nancy Jackson, PhD, MT-BC, has co-written the book Compositional Methods of Music Therapy with her colleague Annie Heiderscheit, PhD, MT-BC, LMFT. Heiderscheit is the director of music therapy and an associate professor at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, Minn.

Selecting and designing appropriate and effective music therapy experiences involves a critical thought process that considers multiple aspects of the client and their personal, interpersonal, and therapeutic contexts, as well as the nature of the four music therapy methods. The book focuses specifically on procedural guidelines for the compositional method-variations.
The book is intended for use by pre-internship music therapy students and by professionals who have never approached music therapy planning and implementation from the perspective of the four outlined methods.
