Published by Éditions Champ Social, written under the direction of the AMENHOTEP team, this collective work reports on reflections, innovative practices and research on the use and contribution of music in the field of mental health. From a multidisciplinary perspective, crossing and decompartmentalizing the academic, professional and artistic worlds, it brings together contributions from researchers from the field of health and music. Organized into four axes, it follows the continuum specific to “art worlds”
The Fondation Dalle Molle has rewarded the AMENHOTEP project, which promotes the quality of life. VIACAM is a member of the project, with the CHUV, the HESAV, the HEIG-VD and the HEMU. AMENHOTEP brings humanity into intensive care in psychiatry, making it possible for the secluded patient to choose pieces of music, in total safety. VIACAM brings the necessary technology to establish the contact between the patient and the caregiver, through a predefined musical choice where each piece expresses a particular emotion.
