GREETINGS OF THE CONSERVATORY

DIRECTOR The idea of organizing this international conference on Music Therapy in Higher Education was born with the objective to compare our experience since 2003 in Conservatory of Pescara with what happens in the schools of Music Therapy active at Conservatories and Universities across Europe. The Conference will provide an important opportunity to initiate a reflection through a scientific comparison of didactic courses exist at the community level and it will allow teachers and students of Music Therapy to measure their experiences and expertise, with those given in the other reality similar existing in Europe. I am sure that the effort made by all members of our Institute for the realization of the project will be rewarded by excellent results. The traditional hospitality of our region of its people will help to make it even more enjoyable and memorable the participation to the conference. Special thanks go to Prof. Silvio Luigi Feliciani, staff, and student volunteers without whom this Conference would not have been possible. On behalf of myself I send greetings to all the speakers and participants for an inspiring and uplifting Conference.

M째 Massimo Magri


GREETINGS OF THE HONORARY PRESIDENT OF CONFERENCE As the current WFMT President, I want to thank the CLDA for organizing this dynamic International Conference on “Training in Music Therapy and Europe�. The Conservatory of Pescara under the leadership of Massimo Magri are working hard to prepare an outstanding program that features important presentations on academic courses, clinical placement opportunities, legal issues and employment for music therapists. Concurrent paper presentations are being accepted by both professionals and students alongside submissions for the poster session. It is timely that the Conservatory is preparing this conference as they are the first educational institution in Italy to offer a degree program in music therapy. What an outstanding opportunity for music therapists, health care professionals, musicians, students, researchers and educators to share their work with a focus on stimulating and advancing the growth of music therapy in Italy and Europe. I look forward to meeting you and am privileged to be the Honorary President of this conference. Regards,

President, WFMT Amy Clements-Cortes, PhD, MTA, MT-BC, FAMI


MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE COORDINATOR It is for me a great honor to be able to attract at this conservatory a large number of music therapists . The choice to organize the conference, and the choice of the theme mainly stems from the strategic role that the Conservatory of Pescara has played in recent years in Italy in the area of training in Music Therapy. Our Bachelor degree program is currently the only one in Italy, and has about 60 students, some with very successful international placements through Erasmus. All learners do placements at national rehabilitation centers and hospitals affiliated committed for more than two years in rehabilitation projects, with children and adults affected by any kind of disability. Other trails, in other Italian Conservatories of music are biennial specialization courses. There are no university degree programs in Music Therapy. Consequently, with good reason the Conservatory of Pescara Pescara is a prime candidate to play a proactive, interlocutory referential and privileged role, backed by governmental structures that will take care of the professional standards of Music Therapy in Italy. Although standardization will take a long time, we will fight to ensure that adequate standardization is provided, in line with the parameters of training in Music Therapy in European Higher Education Institutions. In order to respond fully to this objective in the Conservatory today we wish to promote a comparison between all the European academic realities. You will certainly have noticed that I want to give the students the possibility to express their opinions.


They are -the students- the real stars of our work as trainers. And their presence, along with their voice, is for us a great stimulus and a strong element of reflection. Welcome everyone, then, welcome to our colleagues, welcome to the authorities, and welcome to the students. For the Conservatory of Pescara this is the first time we have organised such a complex event as that of an international conference. But I am sure that we will be up to our task, we will be hospitable and appropriate, and we will provide a decisive contribution to the development of training in music therapy in Europe. Sincerely Yours,

Am I dreaming or awake? A Guide for travelling towards the Imagery Galaxy, beyond the perceived Universe

PSICONLINE PUBLISHER Presentation of the book "Sogno o son desto" (Am I dreaming or awake?) by Gabriella Giordanella Perilli. Talking with the Author has the aim to offer participants an introduction into the intriguing and amazing imagination galaxy, beyond the perceived universe. In her book, the Author proposes numerous imaginative experiences, “Scenarios”, purposefully designed, associated with music and relaxed states. By practicing such “Scenarios”, people seem able to promote imagery, a human capacity useful for increasing self-knowledge, forms of reflexivity, and, by consequence, a better quality of life. The book is available through :

ABSTRACTS OFFICIAL OPENING OF CONFERENCE – SPECIAL GUEST

Challenges of Music Therapy development in Europe. Conception of the sustainable development model The Commission on Education and Training, World Federation of Music Therapy promotes dissemination of knowledge regarding contemporary guidelines for the standards of the education and training of music therapists around the world. As the European Commissioner, I focus on music therapy in Europe mostly on the achievements, problems and challenges of this discipline. One of the most important aims of the Commission is to encourage discussions regarding educational standards and to develop educational resources for music therapy educators to further enhance education/training practices. All these issues are close to my heart, not only as a music therapist, but also as President of the Polish Music Therapists’ Association (PSMT), an organisation which tries to do its best to support the development of the discipline in Poland. It has been noticed that some countries have developed structures and built good relations with other professionals, others, particularly countries and regions where music therapy is not yet well established, are still struggling with various challenges: how to organize the process of music therapists’ training, develop the discipline, become a partner for national health care systems. Formulating answers is not easy and definitely must follow a process. The sustainable development model for music therapy will be described. The system was designed for countries which need support in the building of the music therapy profession. It shows a process of training and building structures and describes all the important steps that must be taken to


provide solid grounds for the development of this discipline. It takes into account such important aspects of development like training and practice, research and publications. The sustainable development model has been accepted by the PSMT and implemented in Poland. Last year the model was recognized at the World Music Therapy Congress in Austria.

THE STUDENTS SAY...

Our experience as music therapist at the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wroclaw (Poland) This presentation describes our experience as music therapist at the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wroclaw (Poland). We begins by describing who we are and where we come from. After we describe our training program: the Bachelor degree and the Master degree. We talk about the content related to the compulsory disciplines that we attended, and we'll talk about those optionals disciplines too. Than we will describe the practical activities that we attended during the practical activity (the integration of the different applications of music therapy in rehabilitation activities in schools, in the cardiology department of a hospital, a psychiatric hospital, centers for the blind and others). We'll tell you what we felt during these experiences. After we will discuss how we can organize activities of music therapy in various centers, and for what objectives. Finally we will present the Music Therapy Scientific students organization, we will describe the many events we organize through this organization (conferences, jam sessions, concerts and more) in order to present and teach music therapy in Wroclaw). We will close our presentation by describing what we can do with the program Erasmus to Karol Lipinski Academy of Music. We hope, for this presentation, it will be able to provide a useful contribution to the information that this conference try to achieve. A contribution told from the voice of someone who has personally


experienced of studying before, and after use, the skills to do the job of a Musician therapist Paulina Mròz, MA music therapist student, the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław Nikola Maślanka, MA music therapist student, the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław Wrocław, Poland

Pescara Conservatory partnership - our training at Mayfield School in Torquay – UK (Italy) Our training at the Mayfield School, a specialist school for Cognition and Learning disability. What we want to share is: our experience and how is important it is for a student to go abroad, put into practice the objectives of your country course, develop learning and skills testing; everything in another language and with people with different course of study. The importance, in our view, to draw from different experiences. What this training helped us for: to create a progressive sense of belonging to a professional community, developing theoretical and practical skills useful in different contexts. The detailed program of the training period: observation sessions with clients, writing individualized project built based on client characteristics, our role as music therapists and as co-therapists, ourmodels of music therapy used and deepened (like Nordoff Robbins and Clifford Madsen), cooperation with activities supportuseful to establish an emphatic relation with the customer and a greater knowledge alsoimportant for best sessions


of music therapy, our weekly supervision sessions and their structure, monitoring and evaluation planof our work through weekly reports sent to our Academic course Coordinator, the final report. Video presentation of our partnership institution: The Mayfield School.

From inspiration to action - impact of international experience on music therapist`s career (Poland) Erasmus scholarship is not just a way to discover foreign Because in music therapy there are so many approaches and country, get new friends or additional value to one’s CV. ways of leading sessions, it seems to be crucial to know and feel the variety. International exchanges give a great opportunity not only to explore it in practice but also to understand and respect the differences. In the presentation I will tell how did I see the differences in the way of studying in Wrocław and Verona, pointing out the skills that I got there and use in everyday professional life. I will also tell why after studying in Verona I made up my mind and became music therapist. Erasmus was really enriching experienceit provided me with knowledge, opening many doors. But what I personally found the most important – it opened my eyes to my imperfections as well as strengths.

Music Psychotherapy as an Official Psychotherapist Training in Finland In 2013, Music Psychotherapist Training (96 ECTS credits) was officially accepted as its own independent orientation and a form of psychotherapy at the University of Oulu, The Faculty of Medicine in Finland according to the new psychotherapy statute (1120/2010 2a §) in Finnish law. Only those universities, which have a responsibility for the medical and psychological training are allowed to arrange psychotherapy training in Finland currently. Master of Philosophy in music therapy has been accepted as a ground university degree since 2012 when the first advanced psychodynamic music psychotherapy training in 2007–2011 at the University of Oulu was authorized leading to the protected psychotherapist tittle by the Valvira (National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health). The 4-year psychodynamic music therapy training is an integrative psychotherapy training including the verbal psychodynamic psychotherapist and the music therapist trainings. The graduated students who have completed their studies successfully evaluated by the university receive the authorization to use psychotherapist tittle from the Valvira. Music psychotherapists can work as an independent psychotherapists and the rehabilitation service providers of the psychodynamic psychotherapy and music therapy for the Kela (Social Insurance Institute of Finland). (Alanne 2013; 2014a; b; Alanne & Wahlberg, 2014.)


Music psychotherapist training in Finland is theoretically developed from the clinical work and the theories of the pioneering music therapists Juliette Alvin, Mary Priestley and Helen L. Bonny in 1960`s and 1970`s (Bruscia 1998; Hadley, 2003). It is grounded on the psychodynamic psychotherapy and the latest development of psychoanalytic theory.

Bachelor & Master Training Program in Music Therapy ad the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems (Austria) – Reflections This presentation will be devided into two parts: 1. Part one will describe main aspects of the Bachelor- & Master-Programes in Krems, which are organsized according to the Federal Law on Music Therapy in Austria. The Bachelor Program puts it’s focus on the development of practical therapeutical skills. The focus of the Master Program lies on the development of practical research skills. This part will also be illustrated by some video-examples of clinical training sessions. 2. Part two of the presentation will reflect upon different „role models“, which are connected to different attributions and expectations. We should be aware, that - as teachers, students, patients, therapists etc. - persons always act in the frame of role models. Nevertheless humans are more than the role they are referred to. It will be discussed, how students may find a deeper understanding of their role as a music therapist.

Student involvement in music therapy research at the SRH University Heidelberg (Germany) The School of Therapeutic Sciences offers degree programs in classical therapeutic approaches (e.g physiotherapy) as well as arts therapies approaches. The department of music therapy within the School of Therapeutic Sciences was the first state approved academic institution for music therapy in Germany and is with about 150 music therapy students the largest in Europe today. In all of the degree programs, but especially in the master degree programs, the integration of applied research into the students’ curricula is of great importance. All students learn the fundamentals of scientific research right in the beginning of their studies. This includes formal knowledge of scientific research methods as well as the implementation of at least one own empirical study before the onset of their MA-thesis. In addition to the contents they learn in class, students are invited to engage in our department’s research projects: The in-house psychophysiological laboratory has an emphasize on pain research referring to therapeutic application. With the laboratory we pursue the goal to involve students in planning, conducting, analysing and publishing scientific research under the supervision of experienced scientists. They also have the possibility to intern or to conduct a study voluntarily in the laboratory. This offers them the opportunity to apply the formal knowledge gained in class and to acquire competences in the field of scientific research methods. The collaborative research projects provide the opportunity for students to work together with our well-known national and international partners like the hospitals of the University of Heidelberg (Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Palliative Care Unit, Neonatology) or the Ohio State University. The research's main areas of focus of the School of Therapeutic Sciences lie in the effects of music therapy in palliative care, music therapy with the


elderly and music therapy with depressive adolescents. Multiple theses have been written in the context of these areas Josephine Geipel, M.A. music therapist (candidature DMtG), research associate, and lecturer, SRH University Heidelberg, Germany Prof. Dr. Thomas K.

Presentation of the training program of the School of Psychotherapy and Integrated Music Therapy, Rome (Italy) The School of Psychotherapy and Integrated Music Therapy – SPIM (officially recognized by Italian Ministry of Research and Education in 2003) offers a post – degree, four – year training for psychology and/or physician. The school program is based on the framework of second-generation cognitive science: it includes interdisciplinary contributions describing how human beings develop and function from a neurophysiologic and psychological perspective. The uniqueness of the proposed program is that it is integrative in three ways: It integrates neurophysiological and psychological aspects of the person, tacit and explicit modes of consciousness, and nonverbal and verbal codes for meaning. For the above reasons, the program addresses the complexity of human beings by integrating theory and research based on second-generation cognitive science and by training students in different methods of psychotherapy, such as cognitive psychotherapy (Beck, 1976; Ellis, 1962; Guidano, 1987, 1991; Lazarus, 1991; Liotti, 2007) and music therapy, that is, Guided Imagery and Music (Bruscia, 2002). It is in this same vein that the integrated cognitive program refers to a psychology of health based on


autonomy, freedom, development of human potentialities, and selffulfillment, all of which involve the self-reflection needed to be continually aware of one's own characteristics and resources. The SPIM program addresses several issues: (l) It outlines how analogical and analytic modalities work together to process information; (2) It shows various metaphorical methods to elicit tacit knowledge and its verbal representation; (3) It provides a body of evidence to support the idea that music does indeed have emotional power for developing self-awareness; and (4) It proposes an integrated methodology to improve the efficacy and efficiency of therapeutic intervention, based on the same processes and functions that human beings use in their own lives to promote knowledge and development.

The music improvisation in the active music therapy Music therapy improvisation we find many points in common with the proper music (instruments, forms, people ...), but there are other skills (transference countertransference, personal sound analysis, phenomena fonosymbolic ...), equally important that connote the epistemological premises and objectives. In the treaty is emphasized, both as regards the musical skills of basic rhythmic and harmonic (to explore the potential of aesthetic gratification), the other to those appropriate skills "meta-musical" (sound and sense, symbolization, energy aspects ...) fundamental to operate well in a group of active music therapy. Together with the musical aspects, will investigate the basic concepts of nonverbal language (empathy, mirror biological ...) and those more closely related to the Benenzon methodology (setting, ISO, ... GOS). Particular attention will be directed to use conventional and especially "nonconventional" guitar as a tool aggregator in the group and more properly "intermediary object" in the relationship.

The music therapy program at the SRH University Heidelberg (Germany) Talking about different curricula of music therapy training in Europe gives us the chance to portrait our point of view as students of music therapy in Heidelberg, Germany. Our objective is to point out the importance of applied practical training. Therefore we would like to give insights in the music therapy program at the SRH University Heidelberg, where applied practical training is emphasized both in the B.A. and the M.A program. This is shown by the unique combination of the integration of the music therapy outpatient center on campus as well as long term placements and the assistantship as co- music therapist in the outpatient center, which provide the students with various opportunities to gain experience under supervision in their future field of work. Initially the structure and the integration of applied practical training in the curriculum will be displayed, followed by the reflections of two students on their personal experience during the B.A. and M.A. program. Furthermore the pros and cons of the extent to which applied practical training is integrated in the curricula will be discussed.

Music Therapy in progress The Poster that we want to present, it shows the itinerary and the development of the Music therapy in Italy, from the 70’s till our days. What we want to highlight is just how Music therapy has become established and especially how it is developing now. It must consider that, unlike the other European countries, in Italy music therapy is more recent ; and just because it is a ‘’new ‘’ discipline , it creates a kind of scepticism today , especially in the healthcare community; and it is not considered so important. Therefore no one examines it, and even the governmental authorities don’t take any stand about this situation. The way of a right consideration of the music therapy is still so far; and many music therapists fight constantly in order to consider it like a real profession. In fact as the title of the poster suggests “music therapy in progress”. Salvatore Esposito, therapy BA Pescara Conservatory of music.

The legally recognized of the Musictherapist in Europe The purpose is to show in which European Countries is legally recognized the figure of the Music therapist and in which are not. The profession of the Music therapist, by ancient roots and of current issue, is unstoppably projected into wider and independent areas, supported by scientific awards and numerous therapeutic achievements, publications, researches and experiments that confirm the high potential of the discipline and the


interest that it arouses. We highlight the continuous stress by many Musictherapists to recognize the professional figure of the Musictherapist, through governmental regulation that rules their professional duties and the establishment of a national roll.

Education and Training in Music Therapy In many European countries the training of the music therapist is not recognized as a tertiary level education. Based on the guidelines of the European Music Therapy Confederation, the purpose of this work is to provide an overview of training courses in Europe, differentiating public and private sector and focusing on what kind of school of music therapy such courses are located. Even in tertiary education, the study of music therapy arouses confusion because it is included in many disciplines: from Arts and Music to Health and Psychological sectors. For these reasons, specific official statistics from Eurostat are unavailable: qualitative data are complemented by statistical indicators that enclose culture, employment and education at country level.

An Icelander in Heidelberg: Music therapy in Heidelberg from a foreigner point of view As in several other countries, there are no existing courses in music therapy in Iceland. It is therefore necessary, for Those interested in studying music therapy, to look for possibilities abroad. I want to present the perspective of an Icelandic student, who studies at the SRH University Heidelberg in Germany. Initially there will be pointed out the reasons for studying in Germany and especially at this university. Aside from its very charming culture, Germany has one of Europe’s leading educational systems. Above all International students receive great support, which can mainly be attributed to the International office that is operated on campus. The International office has a big variety of offers and addice to help International students to integrate, ranging from information on how to apply for admission at the università and German courses and private lessons to excursions organized by the office. The music therapy course at the SRH University in Heidelberg is unique for various reasons, such as offering the only under graduate program for music therapy in Germany and an outpatient clinic On campus. In my experience, everyone, both staff and students, did everything to make me feel welcome. My biggest worry, about studying in Germany, was the language. However, that worry was soon eliminated because of the support from professors, teachers and fellow students. After 3 semesters, I almost feel like a local. As for my perspectives after I finish my degree, there are some differences between Germany and Iceland. The main difference being that the profession is way more developed in Germany. There is already an association for music therapists in Germany whereas there is still no association in Iceland. This, of course, makes it easier to pursue a career as a music therapist in Germany. However it is also a very exciting opportunità to take part in the development of music therapy in Iceland. Ása Dóra Gylfadóttir, student B.A. music therapy, SRH University Heidelberg, Germany

Our wines are natural products of our terroir – our unique combination of terrain and soil, which we try to convey to every bottle and which is the secret of our original taste. The local micro-climate and the land itself, to which our vines are bound and so well-adapted, give rise to wines of a unique, distinctive character. Convinced that a fine wine is born from the sum of so many small details, our objective must not only be to always produce fine wine, but also to make sure that our wines are always authentic.
