Conversations With My Father: Adapting "A Musical Chronology and the Emerging Life Song" with Older Adults
Duffey, Thelma; Somody, Catherine; Clifford, Sue
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v2 n4 p45-63 2006-2007
This article provides a brief review of the literature describing successful aging life tasks, such as reminiscence, meaning-making, and forming substantive connections. Using Relational-Cultural Theory as a base, the article addresses the need for connection and ways that connections can be developed and sustained in later life. Through a personal account, the authors also illustrate how grown children can use music to connect with their parents. Finally, the authors adapt "A Musical Chronology and the Emerging Life Song," an intervention that uses music and memories, for use with older adults.
