Music is an underutilized resource for research in the social sciences. This article presents examples of musical elicitation methods
that were used within a study that explored how adolescents who were referred to group music therapy for aggression produced
meanings of aggression through the therapeutic process. The study was conducted within a poststructuralist paradigm, particularly
using the theoretical thinking tools of Deleuze and Gergen. The elicitation methods discussed include drumming, creating
images during music listening, and songwriting. The article argues for the role of musical elicitation methods particularly within
research that values a radical relational stance that allows participants to comfortably territorialize the research encounter, and in
light of considering the transformative potential of research itself.
