Abstract

BERGOLD, Leila Brito; ALVIM, Neide Aparecida Titonelli  and  CABRAL, Ivone Evangelista. The place for music in therapeutic care: sensitizing nursing with the musical dynamic. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.2, pp. 262-269. ISSN 0104-0707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072006000200010.

The influences of music on the body were the object of this study developed along with a group of nurses in a Graduate discipline. Besides describing these influences, the study's objective is to interpret the applicability of the dynamic of creativity and Body-Musical sensitivity as a way to make the nurse create sensitiveness when it comes to music in the care process. The Creative-Sensitive Method has been used in the production of research data. The holistic, frolic, and mechanical influences of music on the body were the themes discussed. The group concluded that music acts on the whole body and its influence depends on the context, music style, and listener taste. The research revealed the potential of this dynamic as a wide space of dialogical education, consisting in an important strategy in the action of the nurses about music possibilities as a therapeutic resource.
