Conference 2018:

    Music Therapy

           - the BIGGER PICTURE

The 2018 conference looked beyond the music therapy room to the impact that music therapy has on the lives of clients, therapists and support staff.

The Bigger Picture considered:

  • a needs-led role change from therapist to teacher in work with a young client;

  • severely learning disabled adolescents - hearing their feedback;

  • how music therapy in dementia care can support staff training;

  • self-care for music therapists, and 

  • how professional practice in learning disability health teams is on the change.

There were 2 concurrent practical sessions, one involving improvisation and discussion, the other considering the supervisory relationship.

Presenters:

Owain Clarke, Veronica Austin, Lucy Pickering, Christina Lydon, Juliet Wood,

Leigh Warren-Thomas and Amanda Lapping.

Alongside our profession's necessary discussions around assessment, evaluation and research, there is a need to consider other boundaries affecting our work. At this conference we discussed the issues and obstacles often to be got around before therapy can start; and the many and various types of endings, some beyond our control as therapists, yet...

‘So important to get the ending right’ - client with mental health needs.
