CIMTR Public Lecture Series: Music therapy and improvisation - Research, practice and needs

Events — Online Webinar ZOOM
16 May 2022, 17:30

Improvisational music therapy is grounded in clinical improvisation and is increasingly being validated as a prominent music therapy method for a variety of mental health-related problems. The immediacy, involvement and unpredictability of clinical improvisation sets out a unique frame in which temporal affective-body processes are actively addressed. In this presentation, we will demonstrate recent research projects focusing on clinical improvisation, conducted at LUCA and KU Leuven (Belgium). In addition, we will discuss current needs to increase our understanding of improvisation-based interventions for the treatment of a variety of psychopathologies.
