The internet offers music therapists unprecedented opportunities for serving clients, educating the public, and advocating for the profession. With these new resources comes the need to develop as ethical thinkers, as we thoughtfully consider how to be on the web in a professional, ethical manner. This course focuses on professional relationships on the internet–with clients, employers, colleagues, and the general public – with a focus on ethical decisions about social media, websites, blogs, and other internet-based technology. In this course, participants will learn general guidelines about ethical issues then apply this learning to a series of ethical dilemmas, using Dileo’s Ethical Decision Making Model.

“Would I recommend this course to others? Definitely! Technology is advancing so fast, and I feel like as MT’s, it’s our job to keep abreast of what our options are in technology, and how we can both use them to ours and our clients’ benefit, as well as ensuring we are causing no harm. I was encouraged to see that an online policy I had in place for myself for was in alignment to the instructor’s policy as well. The instructor laid out some really good ways to essentially “check myself”, and I definitely plan on keeping the lists and handouts for this, as a reference. Overall, I thought it (the course) was put together really well and thoughtfully! I liked the specific scenarios given to us, and then working through them. I definitely plan on coming back to MusicTherapyEd.com and continuing to utilize it. To say that it’s convenient would be an understatement!”
“After taking this course, I feel that I will be able to better represent myself on the internet as a professional music therapist. I am grateful to have received some good tips from the instructor regarding how to make good decisions with social media and website content. I am currently building a website, and I’m so glad to have taken this course before adding more content and structure to my site. It helped to have this course serve as a foundation as I build my web presence and represent myself as a professional.”
“This course is an easy and understandable way to get information on this topic — a topic which doesn’t have a lot of material available for music therapists right now. I enjoyed learning about why using the Internet as a professional is useful. I had felt that I had a good sense of ethics in other areas prior to this course, but hadn’t understood why it would in fact be ethical, and important to use the Internet in the first place. So, understanding that has broadened my understanding, which I appreciate. After taking this course, I will be more comfortable and interested in having more of a presence online in the future, as a professional. I also really appreciated having access to this course at home. What you offer is a wonderful opportunity. Thank you!”
“This course provided the framework and the tools to assist in making the best decisions for ourselves and most important, those we serve. Rachelle Norman’s expertise and insight was extremely helpful, and she gave an excellent presentation! She was knowledgeable, honest, positive and encouraging. Once again, this course along with the AMTA Code of Ethics, highlighted why I am so proud to be part of this incredible profession. Thank you for providing these courses!”
“I would absolutely recommend this course. It’s vital that we revisit our adherence to the highest ethical standards and to be aware of those situations that occur in professional practice. I enjoyed the calls and the interaction with fellow MT’s. After taking this course, I will continue to be aware of ethical situations and to uphold the highest standard of ethical behavior. Thanks for again providing outstanding courses. While it’s great to attend conferences, this format is especially helpful since it can be ongoing and without the expense and time of conference attendance.”
“This is my third online course through musictherapyed.com and I LOVE the format, the support, the forums and the array of topics and instructors sharing from their expertise! This course is perfect for fulfilling the new ethics requirement for re-certification. I enjoyed the scenarios that Rachelle presented within the course and also the real-life scenarios that came up in the phone calls. Hearing Rachelle’s insight and other music therapists responses and thoughts in processing and problem solving important ethical issues was super helpful.”
