What: Music Therapy Symposium with workshops "MUSIC THERAPY AND NEURODEVELOPMENT"
The XII International Meeting of Music Therapy has as its theme “Music Therapy and Neurodevelopment”. Neurodevelopmental issues can often lead to major motor, communicational, and social limitations that affect a person's functionality and participation in their daily lives. Through musical involvement and by participating in a therapeutic context, music therapy promotes significant development of functional skills that can be taken to the client's everyday life outside the session. This meeting aims to promote various moments of sharing and discussion among professionals who work with people with neurodevelopmental disorders and who use music as a therapeutic work tool, or work hand in hand with it, to promote more health and quality of life to these people and their caregivers.
Who: Organised by APMT
