This chapter emphasizes the treatment specificity of music stimuli in order to provide a systematic model for the use of music in therapy focusing on cognitive, affective, and perceptual aspects in the area of healthy psychological functioning in human personality. Both the discussion and model are intended to integrate an objective neurological basis for the effect of music stimuli, and their respective stimulus properties and associated responses, with the subjective variables of perceptual and evaluative music processing, in order to arrive at a predictable, analysable, and measurable treatment result.
