Abstract of the lectures

Influences of musical projects in psychiatric youth therapy

The first conference entitled "Influences of musical projects in psychiatric youth therapy", took place on 24 October 2018 at 7pm at the Philharmonie Luxembourg.

Since 2016, the Fondation EME  in collaboration with the Juvenile Psychiatry of the Hôpitaux Robert Schuman and the Rocklab of the Rockhal have been proposing the project "Looss alles eraus". During a series of rap and dance workshops, twenty youngsters, supervised by rapper David Galassi and dancer Sylvia Camarda, have the opportunity to express themselves freely through dance and rap. Giving free rein to their creativity, overcoming their fears and gaining self-confidence are just some of the side effects of "Looss alles eraus".

The conference brought together 3 speakers from the scientific and musical community in Luxembourg and abroad:

Dr. Med. Salima Aarab (Specialist in child psychiatry), Marlene Rauch (Master in musical mediation) and Nazfar Hadji (Doctoral student in instrumental pedagogy). You will find the program at the bottom. Moderation was by Sarah Bergdoll and a debate followed the three speeches.
