The Call for Proposals is now closed. Thank you for your submissions!  You may still submit a Research Session Proposal until June 10.

The theme for the AMTA 2022 Annual Conference will center on the many creative ways that music therapists engage in collaboration. We invite you to consider highlighting these collaborations in your conference session proposals:

  • Collaboration with clients to center their needs, wants, and preferences
  • Multidisciplinary collaboration in treatment processes
  • Collaboration with other music-based service providers to expand the continuum of care
  • Peer collaboration with music therapists for advocacy, support, and advancement of the music therapy profession
  • Any other innovative collaborations you have engaged!
  • Deadline: April 25th, 2022
Presentation Options
  1. On-site (in person) conference ONLY the week of October 17th in Jacksonville, FL
  2. Live Zoom presentation post live conference (November 2022 – May 2023)
  3. Pre-recorded MP4 session for possible virtual platform available post-live conference (November 2022). The recording will be due at the end of October 2022.

For your submission, you will need to be prepared to submit: the name, current confirmed credentials (per AMTA’s style guide, advanced degrees are not written with periods and MT-BC is listed last, only advanced degrees and credentials are included; see AMTA Advisory on Acronyms for more information), mini-biography, photo, and contact information for each presenter. You will also need to submit the presentation title, type, abstract (500 characters maximum, including spaces), audience, learning objectives, long form description, bibliography, release requirements, pre-requisites, possible conflicts for all presenters, instruments requested, conflict of interest declaration, and usage permissions. If you have not already done so, you will need to create an account in the system in order to submit your proposal.  You may save before submitting and come back to your proposal later if necessary. Please ensure that only one person creates a submission or each session proposal.

As a leader in the community, your support of the AMTA 2022 Annual Conference is an opportunity for your organization to receive exposure in the music therapy community and to join other individuals, organizations, and coalitions in supporting AMTA’s mission: to advance public awareness of the benefits of music therapy and increase access to quality music therapy services in a rapidly changing world by making sure those who need music therapy, get quality services. The theme of the 2022 conference is collaboration, which reminds us we can all work together to improve the lives of those we serve, helping them achieve their healthcare goals with music therapy.
