Daily plenary events at EMTC2016: The Dialogue Sessions

Instead of presenting regular keynote lectures at our conference, we have decided to arrange 

Dialogue Sessions 

in which topics relevant to the discipline of music therapy will be discussed within a broader context. 

In each of these sessions, a music therapist and an expert from another field will first present their thoughts and then engage in a dialogue with each other, and with the audience.

We are honoured to be able to present the following distinguished speakers and their shared topics:

Stefan Koelsch (GER/NOR) & Wendy Magee (US):

Music therapy and neuroscience


Johanna Doderer (A) & Dorit Amir (ISR):

Improvising and composing


Christian Köck (A) & Brynjulf Stige (NOR):

Music therapy and economy


(More details on speakers and topics will follow.)

In a special fourth Dialogue Session, 25 years of collaborative work on developing the music therapy profession in Europe will be celebrated by a group of people involved in the European Music Therapy Confederation, EMTC:

Dialogues on European music therapy professional development:                   

Various practices, one goal

Adrienne Lerner, Hanne Mette Ridder, Ferdinando Suvini, Rut Wallius, Ingeborg Nebelung, Alice Pehk, Albert Berman, Ranka Radulovic, Tessa Watson, Esa Ala-Ruona

We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna in July this year!
