AMTA and CBMT Announce New Music Therapy License in Connecticut

August 11, 2023 10:11 AM

The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) are pleased to announce that music therapy title protection in Connecticut has been transformed to a music therapy license. Earlier this summer Governor Ned Lamont signed into law HB 6733, which included language to create a music therapy license overseen by the Department of Public Health.

Please help us congratulate members of the Connecticut Task Force for their years of service in promoting state recognition (Emily Bevelaqua, Courtney Biddle, Natalie McClune, Jennifer Sokira, Heather Wagner), as well as all the professional and student music therapists in the state who attended Hill Day events, sent letters of support, and participated in advocacy efforts that helped lay the foundation for this success.
