I am back at full-steam after my maternity leave and a deliberately slow entry back into clinical work. (Our little one is sleeping better, which means I am, too!) I have plenty of openings for new clients at this time, so please contact me about getting music therapy services started.
This coming weekend, I will be participating in the first ever Online Conference for Music Therapists. I am looking forward to this conference as a great opportunity to connect with other music therapists from around the world. I am excited to gather new ideas to bring back to my cinical work. I will also be giving a presentation on how music therapists use music for self-care, based on the research I conducted for my master’s thesis.
I am also looking forward to attending the American Music Therapy Association’s Midwestern Regional Conference, being held April 8-10 here in Overland Park, Kansas. I will also be giving a presentation at this conference in my role as our region’s representative to the government relations committee, along with the chairs of the state advocacy task forces in our region. We will be giving an update on the State Recognition Operational Plan, which is aimed to have the MT-BC credential recognized as the credential necessary to provide music therapy in each state.
On this blog in the coming weeks, you can look forward to the last two installments in my series on hiring a music therapist in long-term care, as well as more song spotlights, which are aimed to help caregivers connect with their clients and loved ones through music.
As always, please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you have about music therapy or topics you’d like to see addressed on this blog. Thank you for your continued interest!
