This study presents an instrument (Music Therapy Rating Scale) to evaluate the relationship process between the patient and the therapist during music therapy sessions. The rating scale was developed from an intersubjective framework and from an improvisational music therapy technique. It mainly consists of two behavioral classes: Non-Verbal Communication and Sonorous-musical Communication. Five levels for each class are given (from 0 to 4). Every 15 seconds two couples of music therapists coded the behaviors in seven sessions with different patients. The patients were seven children (4 males; 3 females) aged 3-10 years (mean age = 6,28), diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder. The reliability indexes were computed and there was a substantial agreement in the assessments of the video raters (Non-Verbal Relationship: = .70; Sonorous-musical Relationship: = .77). A digital output of the program to use the MTRS is presented and clinical implications are shortly discussed.

Abstract

This study presents an instrument (Music Therapy Rating Scale) to evaluate the relationship process between the patient and the therapist during music therapy sessions. The rating scale was developed from an intersubjective framework and from an improvisational music therapy technique. It mainly consists of two behavioral classes: Non-Verbal Communication and Sonorous-musical Communication. Five levels for each class are given (from 0 to 4). Every 15 seconds two couples of music therapists coded the behaviors in seven sessions with different patients. The patients were seven children (4 males; 3 females) aged 3-10 years (mean age = 6,28), diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder. The reliability indexes were computed and there was a substantial agreement in the assessments of the video raters (Non-Verbal Relationship: = .70; Sonorous-musical Relationship: = .77). A digital output of the program to use the MTRS is presented and clinical implications are shortly discussed.
