This international symposium on Music Therapy with Families is organised by the Music Therapy with Families Network and the Music Therapy Research Centre Vienna (WZMF).

The Music Therapy with Families Network is an international group of qualified and certified music therapists who work with families and wish to network with others to share ideas, resources and connections.

Since 2017 the Music Therapy Research Centre Vienna represents a collaborative research project between the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw) and the Medical University of Vienna (MedUni Wien) and became an integral part of mdw in 2019.

Based on the idea of combining music therapy research with music therapy treatment and music therapy training at WZMF, the main research focus is on music therapy for children, adolescents, and families.
