Abstrakt

The aim of the PhD study by Unni Tanum Johns is to explore the influence of non-symbolic microprocesses in time-limited intersubjective child psychotherapy through a musical frame. It builds on microanalytic research, from infant development and music therapy, demonstrating how musical elements can describe and illuminate variations in emotional expressions and relationship qualities.

Problems with emotion regulation are found in a wide range of diagnoses, affecting the quality of children´s lives. Therefore, the facilitation of emotion regulation is a central goal for child psychotherapy. Knowledge from developmental research shows how affective, non-symbolic reciprocal moment-to-moment interplay underlie and organize self-developmental processes.

The qualitative multi-layered microanalysis revealed some patterns across samples which demonstrate how a musical dynamics-based description embody and clarify the child´s activity, emotional expressions and intentions as well as illuminate intersubjective exchanges.
