An Overview of Research in the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music
An overview from the beginning till 2010 by Denise Grocke: "Research studies in the Bonny Method of GIM indicate diversity of topics and research methods across quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and music analysis. Most are studies of individual Bonny Method GIM sessions, while others report on group music and imagery sessions. Many modifications are being used in order to responsibly “treat” people with severe illness (e.g., psychiatric disorders), and new music programs are being constructed, with contemporary music, and music specific to cultural needs. Given the small numbers of Bonny Method GIM therapists worldwide, it is encouraging to see just how much research has been done, and this augurs well for enhancing the status of the Bonny Method of GIM alongside comparable therapeutic methods.
