In a project funded by the FWF, the musician and psychologist Andrea Korenjak investigates the use of music in psychiatric institutions in Vienna. The scholar is interested in how music was used in the early 19th century and how the psychiatrists explained its effect. Even today, opinions differ as to the healing effect of music. Korenjak contributes a historical perspective.
I am a psychologist and rock musician who wants to do PhD in music therapy psychiatric settings from historical position too.
