BAMT collaborates with ARU and MHA to support first UK Music Therapy conference focusing on Dementia
This conference will be the first in the UK to focus specifically on music therapy and dementia. The number of people reported to be living with dementia worldwide is steadily increasing; this has led to an increased demand for therapies and care approaches which emphasise non-verbal means of relating. This conference will be of particular importance to all music therapists, students, and other professionals interested in work with people with dementia. 
Presentations and workshops will focus upon multidisciplinary work with other practitioners and include contributions from people suffering from dementia; a balance between theory, clinical practice, research and the impact of music therapy will be offered. 

BAMT is delighted to be collaborating with the Music Therapy team in the Department of Music and Performing Arts at Anglia Ruskin University and with Methodist Homes (MHA), a major employer of music therapists in the UK.
