Press Release: 2013 Social Media Advocacy Project

SM-Advocacy-Badge-2012-e1325611932440In January 2013, the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT)—with the help of 4 dozen music therapy bloggers and podcasters—successfully spread the word about music therapy advocacy and government relations through the social media airwaves.
 
Throughout the month, music therapy bloggers and podcasters shared their thoughts, ideas, and questions about what it means to be a music therapy advocate, what the State Recognition Operational Plan entails, the importance of storytelling in the advocacy process, and how you can be involved.
 
We are excited to announce that a total of 48 bloggers and podcasters participated in this project, publishing a total of 71 posts, including 7 podcast episodes, 5 advocacy music videos, and 2 infographics! In addition, we were thrilled to have 19 blogs and podcasts join this project for the first time this year, as well as 2 university blogs. The participating blogs are listed below, with links to the article(s) they published. We invite you to browse through the articles and share them with your friends and colleagues:
