January 7, 2011 – Music Therapy Advocacy

Happy New Year! I hope your New Year’s Resolutions are off to a good start. I also hope that one of them is to advocate for music therapy! On today’s show, my guests are Judy Simpson and Kimberly Sena Moore who, along with Dena Register, work on the State Recognition Operational Plan. Through this Plan, a national initiative being implemented jointly by CBMT and AMTA, Judy, Dena, and Kimberly provide guidance and technical support to State task forces as they work to obtain State recognition of music therapy and the MT-BC credential.

Learn how YOU can help music therapy gain State recognition and create greater access to music therapy for members of your community. Listen to the archives.
