In April, Drs. Joanne Loewy and Andrew Rossetti from The Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine, at Mount Sinai, NYC will offer an introductory 10-hour workshop as part of the Master's Music Therapy training in Enschede. The 2-days are open to the music therapy community and will provide a specialized training option for music therapy professionals and Master's students from ArtEZ and other institutions. Upon completion, attendees will gain understanding of how music therapy integrates within a medical context. With a focus on the integral relationship between mind, body and spirit, attendees will learn how music psychotherapy principles can be applied to a broad range of populations-from illness to wellness, with adherence and informants to a medical-psychosocial team.

Music Therapy Course: an overview of integrative music therapy in medical settings


Identifying music’s impact in health and disease, we will address the mechanisms that influence function and impact in illness and wellness. Focusing on live music, we will explore and exemplify music therapy’s capacity to enhance coping and resiliency strategies addressing significant contributors in the treatment of pulmonary diseases, oncology treatments, and in painful procedures (particularly in pre and post op) and fragile environments. Significant resources identified in a patient’s capacity to monitor chronic conditions will reflect how to integrate music therapy into practice including trauma, visualization relaxation and sedation techniques. We will highlight the assessment and impact of mind-body medicine focusing on the ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors can directly affect health.
