Ethical decisions are not always simple; it is more important than ever to practice our ethical thinking skills. In this video, 3 members of the AMTA Ethics Board discuss a fictional ethical dilemma asking what to do when a music therapy client and caregiver cannot or choose not to wear a mask during a music therapy session. We use the AMTA Code of Ethics and an ethical decision making model to discuss important considerations and possible solutions in a situation like this one.

Help us advocate for the music therapy profession! One of the most important things you can do this year as a music therapist or a member of AMTA is complete the annual AMTA Survey.
