 A qualitative study on the use of MP3 players as a medium for musical self-care.

The Ph.D. study "A technology of well-being" takes on a positive, resource-oriented approach to the research on use of MP3 players. The aim of the study is to interrogate whether and how the use of MP3 players can function as a medium of musical self-care, subjective well-being, and positive health.
