NASCIMENTO, Lázaro Castro Silva. Gestalt music therapy in Brazil: exploring fields. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 53-62. ISSN 1809-6867.

Music Therapy is an autonomous and hybrid area arising from the relation between the knowledge and the practices of arts and health fields. Because of this hybridism, it bases some of its knowledge on other disciplines and other practices such as psychotherapies and, amongst them, Gestalt therapy. The research aims to investigate relations between Music therapy and Gestalt Therapy in order to reflect about a Gestalt Music Therapy. It is an exploratory research, developed as a systematic and unsystematic bibliographical survey, as well as with theoretical and political propositions. The literature shows that although there are works in this direction, the proposal of a Gestalt Music Therapy is still little explored, especially in Brazil, and it seems that there is still little opening for professionals Music therapists to seek specific training in Gestalt therapy.

Keywords : Music Therapy; Gestalt Music Therapy; Gestalt Therapy.
