Press Release: 2012 Social Media Advocacy project

SM-Advocacy-Badge-2012-e1325611932440In January 2012, the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) 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, and how you can be involved.

We are excited to announce that a total of 40 bloggers and podcasters participated in this project, publishing a total of 50 articles, 5 podcast episodes, and 3 advocacy videos! 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.
