Welcome to the Massachusetts Music Therapy Alliance
We are celebrating our 34th year of bringing support to Music Therapists in the area and providing ongoing training. We meet three times a year, offering 5 CMTEs (Continuing Music Therapy Education credits).
Presenting the 2013-2014 program: Music Therapy and Community Transformation
Music Therapy and Community Transformations is a 3-part series that will explore the role of music therapy as it impacts the community.
Themes addressed will include:
• Promotion of social wellbeing with marginalized populations;
• Assisting communities in crisis;
• Advocacy and empowerment;
• Modulating and adapting to the ongoing changes in the world;
• Bringing music therapy to those in need (e.g. acts of terrorism and trauma).
Upcoming meeting topic: Supporting and Empowering Marginalized Populations – A Group Discussion
Participants will explore the role of the music therapist in supporting and empowering marginalized populations. Through discussion and group sharing, participants will explore strategies and experiences in working with a variety of populations and the way in which music therapy promotes social health in the community.
