The latest important ‘wave’ is the so-called cognitive psychology of music, today represented in Europe by the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM), supporting theory and research through international conferences and the interdisciplinary journal Musicae Scientiae. The majority of recent important European contributions to the literature on music psychology belong to this tradition (Hargreaves 1986, Hargreaves and North 1997; Sloboda 1985, 1988, 1995).

These are very complex questions, and any attempt to give an answer to them will depend on the ontological and epistemological position of the theorist or clinician. In this chapter we will consult two major figures within contemporary music therapy theory: Professor Even Ruud (University of Oslo, Norway) and Professor Ken Bruscia (Temple University, USA).
