The Nordic Countries

Since the 1960s the Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway

and Sweden have been working together in promoting music therapy

in Northern Europe. Norway organized the very first Nordic Conference

in 1991.

 

Today, the Nordic conference usually occurs every fourth year, alternating in being arranged within one of these countries. The Nordic conferences are attracting increasing attention in the international music therapy community because of their high scientific level and merry hospitality.
