Many offenders with a psychiatric or psychological disorder respond positively to music, which itself evokes emotions, influences cognitive functioning and affects motivation and reward systems. Could music be applied to regulate the emotions of forensic psychiatric patients, train coping skills, or used therapeutically to encourage patients to practice new, positive behaviours? Laurien Hakvoort builds on evidence-based treatment in forensic psychiatry in this dissertation, presenting case studies, theories and the results of explorative empirical research to postulate how music therapy could reduce risk principles and address needs while tapping into patient responsiveness.
