Interdisciplinary collaboration in music therapy for persons with dementia-in practice and research: Model of learning for practitioners in dementia care with music therapy and interdisciplinary collaboration as the joint focal point

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This contribution aims to give insight in what actually happens in clinical music therapy with people suffering from dementia. Starting from a psychodynamic point of view, the focus is laid on how musical improvisation can contribute to the development of a therapeutic relationship with this specific population. Findings from an ongoing phenomenological study on video-fragments of individual music therapy-sessions with people with dementia will be used to present important clinical phenomena. The advantages of a conceptualization of these phenomena for clinical work and the necessity of it for interdisciplinary collaboration will be illustrated.
