International Symposium Music Therapy with children with autism

With great pleasure we are announcing the 2nd International Symposium with the cooperation of the Cultural Center of the Embassy of the Republic of Hungary in Slovenia, the Balassi Institute Ljubljana and the Institute Knoll for Music Therapy and Supervision, Kranj, Slovenia. We are hosting excellent speakers on the topic of Music Therapy with children with autism. The keynote speaker is Dr. Tali Gottfried from Israel, presenting the Music Oriented Parent Counselling model she developed during her PhD at Aalborg University, Denmark. As well we are welcoming the established German music therapist, specialised in the field of autism, Dr. Karin Schumacher.
Case-studies from various music therapy practitioners are offering insights in the music therapy setting. The round table discussion moderated by Claudia Knoll brings together all presenters to join the discussion on relevant topics in music therapy with children with autistic spectrum disorders.
There will be time for experiential workshops in the afternoon. Every participant can choose one of three possible workshops, held by music therapists from Israel, Germany and Hungary. For the conclusion of the symposium we have the honour to show the recently released documentary film »Operation syncopation«, evaluating the work of Dr. Amelia Oldfield, music therapist, professor and researcher from Cambridge, UK, which will be followed by an open discussion.
The musical frame of the symposium will be created by young musicians with autism, learning at the private music school DoReMI in Bled, Slovenia.
We are looking forward to welcome participants from Slovenia and abroad, including parents and carers, professionals from various areas working with children with the autism spectrum as well as our music therapy colleagues and others interested in this field.
The symposium will be held in English language.
