Collaboration and networks
CREMAH is currently involved in the following collaborative projects:
National network for music therapy in the field of addiction
Several resource centres for treating addiction participate in this network along with the Norwegian Addiction Federation. Both music therapy research communities in Norway also participate: the Norwegian Academy of Music with CREMAH, and the University of Bergen with the Grieg Academy for Music Therapy Research (GAMUT at the University of Bergen/Uni Research Health).
The participants in the network test and evaluate the use of music therapy in the field of addiction, within the areas of prevention and treatment. The overall purpose of the network is to encourage practice-related research and development of knowledge in the use of music therapy, in order to foster motivation, self-awareness, participation and a sense of community.
Consortium of Music Therapy Research
The Norwegian Academy of Music, represented by CREMAH, is part of the International Consortium of Universities with Doctoral and Research Programs in Music Therapy.
National Resource Centre for Music Therapy in the Child Welfare Services
CREMAH participates in the National Resource Centre for Music Therapy in the Child Welfare Services. This is a network in which GAMUT and the University of Bergen, along with CREMAH and the Norwegian Academy of Music, participate through their educational programmes in music therapy. The network also includes representatives of other bodies, such as municipalities, Aleris, Uni Research Health, the Norwegian Addiction Federation, regional knowledge centres for children and young people (RKBU) and regional centres for child and youth mental health (RBUP), as well as representatives from other Norwegian universities and colleges that offer an education in the fields of health and social science.
