Conference Description
This workshop demonstrates an integrative theoretical foundation deeply rooted in a psychodynamic and relational understanding of the therapist-client musical relationship. It also highlights the further development of analytical and analytically oriented music therapy. Longitudinal case studies and vignettes can illustrate this relational understanding as a core element of the integrative approach. In addition, an emphasis is on body awareness and the understanding of the connection of the body and voice as a listening vehicle that manifest in clinical practice among various populations. The presenter will cover theory, clinical practice, and training. Small experiential exercises will illustrate aspects of clinical practice and the training of music therapy students.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
