Music's relevance for pediatric cancer patients
Full Title: Music's relevance for pediatric cancer patients: a constructivist and mosaic research approach
PURPOSE: Music is important in most children's lives. To advance efficacious pediatric supportive care, it is necessary to understand young cancer patients' thoughts about music. Concern about inviting unwell children to express opinions has resulted in scant research examining their views. "Mosaic" research examines children's experiences through investigating multiple perspectives which inform a "co-constructed meaning." This study examines pediatric cancer patients' and their parents' perspectives about music and music therapy's role in the children's lives. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Children were receiving care at three hospitals with the Paediatric Integrative Cancer Service in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. A constructivist research approach with grounded theory design was applied. Children up to 14 years old with cancer and parents participated. Data included transcripts from semi-structured research interviews and observations of children's music behaviors. Qualitative inter-rater reliability was integrated. Findings were compared with music therapists' perspectives examined elsewhere. RESULTS: Interviews were conducted with 26 patients, median age 5.7 years, and 28 parents. Data "saturation" was achieved. A substantive grounded theory emerged: Children's adverse cancer experiences are often alleviated by music usages. Broader family, social, and electronic musical interactions also promote children's resilience and "normal" development. Music therapy and associated programs often, but not always, alleviate children's distress. Positive effects may carry over into children's home lives and vicariously support families. CONCLUSIONS: Health professionals should consider ways to assist parents who are often using music to support children with cancer. Hospitals can promote pediatric cancer patients' resilience by providing music-based support services, including music therapy, and reducing unwanted stressful sounds.

Over the years many people have come to see me because of their anxiety regarding taking tests or exams. This is included people who have anxiety regarding performance-based testing, such as taking a driver's test, or a failed multiple attempts to pass a rule state license exam. Indeed, because of the consequences of failure, the stress related to exam taking can be significant. Yet, after one 90 minute session I cannot think of anyone you has failed their test.
My approach is not very much different than that used by many different coaches and clinical hypnotherapists. One cliché that I...
We all have filters that effect how we perceive things that happen in our life. Previously experiences can alter how we address current challenges – sometimes creating a “fictional” situation. Why do two people experiencing the same event react in two different ways? It’s because their conditioning and filters make it a totally different event for each of them.
So how do we look at an event in an objective a way as possible and then “choose” how we will respond? First we need to acknowledge that even though...
Many mind-body integration advocates really except the relationship between stress and the immune system. However, they often fail to go far enough. Can the mind you use to strengthen the power of the immune system? And, if so, what is the potential for techniques such as guided imagery and hypnosis for the treatment of cancer, AIDS, and other immune-related illnesses.
The immune system is essentially one that identifies pathogens, which is an infectious agent (also known as germs), and reacts accordingly to eliminate the threat. The ability for the various immune system components, such...
