An International Musical Dialogue – Training Program

Dear colleague -
You are invited, together with music therapists from all over the world, to join a unique international training program, which will enable you to conduct `musical dialogue` between groups in conflict. ‘Musical dialogue` groups are intended to enable people from conflicting groups to meet, to listen and to acknowledge each other, to practice respect and tolerance towards each other and to promote brotherhood and cohesion. You can watch an example of a unique `musical dialogue` project that I initiated and conducted in Beit- Shemesh, a city known for its conflicts between religious and secular communities.

The purpose of this program:
To train facilitators to conduct `musical dialogue` groups with populations in conflict, using the power of music, with tools and techniques developed in music therapy practice.

The program consists of 3 stages:
1) 8 sessions - Experience the participation in a `musical dialogue` group. In the group, we will embark on a journey of connecting and dialogue between participants from different countries, between sectors from different religions and cultures.

2) 8 sessions - Theoretical studies, Tools and skills through experiential experience and Guidance Skills Workshop.
--- One month break, to enable participants to establish a group ---

3) 8 sessions - Group Supervision on practical work- Each participant gains experience in establishing and conducting a `musical dialogue` group.

See attached flyer for more information. 

 17:30, Israel time, 

through Zoom, from October 25th, 2020.
