Analytical Music Therapy Symposium: Current Developments in Analytical Music Therapy

ADMISSION: $100 (General), $50 (NYU students)
Saturday, June 13, 2020, 9am-5pm

Analytical Music Therapy (AMT) was originally developed in the 1970s by Mary Priestley in the UK. It was recognized at the 1999 World Congress of Music Therapy as one of five international models of music therapy. While the model developed in psychiatry, its contemporary practitioners have expanded it into other clinical areas. The seven presentations will include clinical case studies, reports on research projects, and experiential examples of live AMT musical techniques. The presenters are all graduates of the Institute for Analytical Music Therapy run by Benedikte B. Scheiby, the only person in North America who provided training in this model.
