$95 /month

Access this course along with 100+ CMTEs and more!

Cancel anytime. No obligation.

In addition to real-time individualized support from the instructor, when you join this course you will:

  • Start your journey by engaging in a Perspective Analysis exercise to help examine potential unconscious biases regarding disability rights
  • Examine disability rights concerns and possible ethical situations through active sharing and discussion
  • Receive access to a comprehensive resource list of current reading material and organizations
  • Broaden your perspective and get plugged in to your local community’s efforts.

Though music therapists often work with persons with disabilities (PWD), one may not realize the full extent of marginalization and discrimination of PWD. PWD make up 26% of the US population, and yet are frequently discriminated against in all facets of life.

What can we do to help our clients beyond the therapy room? How can we change our daily habits and language to be more inclusive and respectful? Are we causing harm in the way we conduct business?

These questions and more will be examined alongside disability rights history and its current state. For disability rights is a civil rights issue, and we must take action to help our clients and ourselves.

 

This course is approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for 3 CMTEs.

The live CMTE sessions are happening December 13th and 14th at 5pm Eastern / 2pm Pacific

Dr. Anita Swanson has been an immensely impactful presence within each stage of my professional life. As the Director of my undergraduate music therapy department, she transformed my education while influencing both my clinical and academic futures. I have always been inspired by her knowledge and passion for our field. Furthermore, not only does she care about educating the future of music therapy, but genuinely fosters success and welfare of her students. In my mind, Dr. Swanson has demonstrated the positive impact that a teacher can have on a student’s career and life.
