Medical Music Therapy: Building a Program cover

AMTA is pleased to announce the launch of Medical Music Therapy: Building a Program, presented by Lori Gooding, PhD, MT-BC. The purpose of this AMTA E-course is to provide an overview of the steps involved in proposing, building, and eventually expanding a medical music therapy program. E-course participants will learn how to propose a program and review important points to consider during the process, including (a) supportive data, (b) tips for developing a strategic plan, (c) key points for administrators and decision-makers, (d) elements of an effective proposal, (e) persuasive advocacy and education strategies, and (f) detailed considerations for setting up, evaluating, and expanding the music therapy program. Information presented in this AMTA E-course in conjunction with the research literature and available resources provides a solid platform necessary to develop or expand a music therapy program in a medical setting. Successful completion of this e-course also provides 3 CMTE credits from American Music Therapy Association - CBMT Approved Provider #P-051.
