Hey ladies (and Chris),

A very interesting interview. Chris, I thought it was a very astute comment you made with regard to music therapists needing to have their own experience of music therapy as a part of the learning process (at least that's how I interpreted what you said).

I also appreciated the reminders to be mindful as to how we choose to express ourselves online (this point was made particularly with regard to students, but obviously affects all of us). I will also have to give further thought as to how I can maintain my professional identity as not only a music therapist and a "regular person" (if I can actually be called "regular"), but also as a professional musician. I find it challenging to figure out how to present these various aspects appropriately and in a therapeutically conscious (for lack of a better way of expressing it) way on the internet.

Thanks, all, for a very thought-provoking interview!
