Music therapy in mental health for illness management and recovery

Research is a time-consuming and difficult process, especially when studying psychiatric consumers. There continues to be a lack of psychiatric music therapy studies that hinders the development of the profession. All types of research are important; the investigator’s compelling research question should dictate the most appropriate research paradigm. Due to the evidence-based practice movement and reimbursement procedures, qualitative research is not as established as quantitative research. Mixed-method designs allow investigators interested in both quantitative and qualitative methods to answer their research questions and triangulate data as each data strand can be used to further interpret and understand the other. Theoretical frameworks are constructs that illustrate the phenomenon under empirical investigation and are considered essential ingredients of research studies. Investigators should adhere to established reporting guidelines to provide readers with sufficient detail for replication and expansion.

Keywords:   music therapy, research, qualitative research, quantitative research, mixed-method research, reporting guidelines, replication, evidence-based practice, mental illness
