Finding Voice: Socially Distance Adaptations of Vocal Psychotherapy in Acute Adult Psychiatry

Explore the transition from the structure of a 50-minute group to a series of 10–15-minute individual sessions with multiple patients due to social distancing restrictions caused by COVID-19. This population has varied severity of symptoms and functioning abilities. (During this work, an N95 mask with a shield was worn by the therapist while the patient wore a surgical mask, and 6-feet distance was maintained.) See how song-based approaches to vocal psychotherapy can engage patients who are challenged by acute symptoms. Multiple clinical examples will be provided. As acute psychiatric units have likely transitioned back to group work, this brief single-session approach remains applicable, as it allows patients who are unable to tolerate the group setting an opportunity to still benefit from music therapy.  Note: This e-course was first offered at the 2021 AMTA National Conference as Add-on Course J.  It was recorded for later viewing and access.

Self-Care for Music Therapists: Insight from Experienced MT-BCs

SelfCareECoverSelf-Care for Music Therapists: Insights from Experienced MT-BCs, provides a practical resource to help music therapists explore the topic of self-care and to get some ideas from the personal and professional experiences of their music therapy colleagues. Self-care is a topic best addressed from several different angles since music therapists have such different personalities and vastly different experiences in our daily lives, and because we all approach our professional careers from different perspectives. We invited eleven experienced music therapists to provide 10-15 minute audio segments talking about self-care from their viewpoint, sharing a few tips and telling a short story or two about keeping their lives centered in the midst of the ups and downs of their music therapy career.

Presenter(s): Deforia Lane, Rachelle Norman, Marcia Humpal, Russell Hilliard, Lisa Gallagher, Blythe LaGasse, Amber Weldon-Stephens, Ed Gallagher, Cathy Knoll, Ami Kunimura, and Amy Smith.

Ethics & Copyright: An Overview for Music Therapists

Ethics___Copyright_coverUnderstanding the essential components of U.S. copyright law and intellectual property is an important part of music therapy clinical practice. Similarly, it is essential that music therapists understand some basic concepts and terms about licensing and proper use of protected works in music therapy practice. Copyright law in the U.S. has historical and legal ties to intellectual property law in England and Europe. Copyright law and intellectual property are dynamic legal and societal concepts influenced by our values, culture, technology, politics, policy, artists, and ethics. The laws governing copyrights aim to balance the interests of both the public and the copyright owners. The purpose of copyright; therefore, is to improve society through the advancement of knowledge by fostering creativity, developing wisdom, supporting democracy, disseminating knowledge, and enriching the public domain. Technological advances, including digital and online technology, create challenges for music therapists that require vigilance and care to maintain the law and abide by the rights of creators of protected works. At the same time, the law aims to allow the possibility for others to use and enjoy protected works. The main mechanisms in place to use protected works involve obtaining permission, typically via a variety of licensing mechanisms, depending on the purpose.  Publish date: August 2014

Music Therapy & Military Populations

MusicTherapyMilitaryPops_2014_ECourseCoverThe Music Therapy and Military Populations AMTA E-course is based on a 2014 status report titled, Music Therapy and Military Populations: A Status Report and Recommendations on Music Therapy Treatment, Programs, Research, and Practice Policy presented by the American Music Therapy Association in 2014. It is a briefing paper for military leadership, military support personnel, federal government officials, representatives of arts and other related organizations, music therapy professionals, and non-profit policy makers. The information provides the groundwork to improve access to music therapy services among military populations and to inform strategic plans for expanded and prioritized implementation of music therapy programs, research, and practice policy in the military. This AMTA E-course allows board certified music therapists an opportunity to earn 3 CMTE credits approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists by reading the briefing paper and submitting the required CMTE Evaluation form. This landmark report discusses the profession of music therapy with a focus on both active duty service members and veterans, and explores the music therapy profession’s rich, enduring contributions to readiness, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness among America’s military populations. The white paper presents exemplary model programs and highlights the strong foundation of published research and evidence to inform practice. Recommendations contained in the paper span research, policy, and program development. Fascinating and important research in music therapy interventions on topics affecting today’s service members and their families is active and growing among various related populations. It is critically important for this research to be tested, replicated and conducted with service members and veterans. Recommendations in the area of practice policy include a call for an updated review of federal job classifications that enable board certified music therapists to provide music therapy interventions.  Publish date, August 2014
