Who hasn’t been in one of those situations where medical assistance is absolutely required and you honestly don’t know what to do? What if there isn’t anyone else there “qualified” to help?

The music therapy field has been developing over the past 60 years as a discipline. It started in the psychiatry and the special education areas as a complement to other psychossocial interventions, but the development of its empirically based methodologies has led to its application in the fields of medicine, geriatrics, psychotherapy and social rehabilitation. In this workshop, participants will learn about the basic principles of a music-based therapeutic intervention, view some demonstrative videos and engage in experiencial activities that will provide them with a personal and interactive approach to the therapeutic use of music.
