Have you ever thought about how to be more effective in getting documentation done? Then this mini institute is for you – and it’s free to current AMTA members registered for the conference! Besides being a requirement for MT-BCs, documentation allows you to monitor your clients’ progress, articulate your unique music therapy perspective, and demonstrate accountability to various stakeholders. During this 3-hour event, you will learn from experts in school settings, medical facilities, and private practice about how to apply innovative data-gathering techniques and use forms to record client responses, progress and outcomes. While sharing hands-on tips and resources, you are invited to evaluate your own documentation process and routines.

Check out the team’s overview of the course, then head to AMTA’s site to sign up to attend this important CMTE.
