Abstract: Active music therapy was first used in German-speaking countries to treat neuroses in the 1950s, by Franz Adelbert Fengler and Hans-Georg Jaedicke, each of whom focused on the human voice and singing as the field of music therapeutic activity. Their approach was taken up and continued in the author's Leipzig Model of group singing therapy.
