This conference marks the 30th anniversary of European music therapy conferences. After the first conference in 1992 which took place in Cambridge, the European conference returns to the United Kingdom. In the span of these three decades, the music therapy profession has grown significantly, and the European conference has become a prestigious triennial event. As such, it offers a unique space for developing music therapists’ professional and disciplinary identity, knowledge and expertise internationally
