MUSic In Creative Detoxification And REhabilitation (MUS.I.C.D.A.RE) is a 3-year strategic partnership funded by Erasmus+ between the University of Macedonia, University of Nimes, alternative therapeutic community Argo in Greece, and PYE Global.
On 18th – 23rd April the seminar will be held at the University of Brighton Grand Parade Campus, where we will have the chance to hear about their partnership with New Note Orchestra, the first recovery orchestra in the world. University of Brighton and New Note Orchestra have been working together to explore the value of creative practice in recovery of those with histories of alcohol or substance abuse. Students, staff and people in recovery are building community and mutual learning through making and performing new music together.
We will also be hosted by One Church Brighton on 24th April, which works with vulnerable groups across Brighton including those facing homelessness, food poverty, poor mental health, addiction, unemployment, unstable housing and many others.
The MUS.I.C.D.A.RE Seminar programme centres around sharing the joint research between the partners of this project into music-assisted systemic desensitisation of cravings during recovery presented by Dr Vasileios Stamou.
The programme covers:
“A genuinely amazing and inspirational experience; I am committed to bringing some of the community/creativity principles and practices into my work as a psychologist.”
Marc Tibber—Trainee Clinical Psychologist
“Personally, I got a lot of inspiration and am more interested in this line of work. It has also made me more determined to do my masters in Music Therapy as I met a lot of therapists from the University of Macedonia. I will be applying to volunteer at a rehabilitation facility. I can put a lot of what I have learnt into practice, the course has given me the confidence to do this.”
Isabel Pinto-Basto—Saxophonist & Music Teacher
“Thank you for such an amazing experience!This opportunity was such a gift and I believe it will prove to be beneficial for many therapists, facilitators and anyone looking to enrich personal communication skills and deepen their level of knowledge and understanding for modern and creative approaches to successful therapy.”
Oliver Short—Musician, Therapist & Facilitator
