In reality, most music therapists are entrepreneurs at heart, continually “selling” music therapy, and always dreaming up cutting-edge strategies for making music therapy services more readily accessible to more people. To encourage that spirit, three experienced music therapists – Cathy Knoll, Barbara Reuer, and Helen Dolas – will overview their innovative non-profit and for-profit music therapy programs, all of which are thriving after several decades. In addition to a wealth of information from Cathy, Barbara, and Helen, a dozen MT-BC’s from around the country will participate in our Pecha Kucha panel, providing informative snapshots and details about model music therapy programs of all shapes and sizes from around the country. CMTE participants will be well equipped to begin the process of expanding established MT programs and creating new MT service delivery options, and will receive valuable, complimentary gifts to help along the journey.
