Episode 38: The Power of Storytelling

by MTRT on January 8, 2013

This January, the music therapy blogging community is banding together for the third annual social media advocacy month. Music therapists in over 35 states are involved in the joint AMTA and CBMT state recognition operational plan, where we are seeking to increase our client’s access to music therapy services through official recognition of our profession and our MT-BC credential. This recognition can happen by being added to agency regulations or through legislation for title protection or the creation of a state registry or license.

A large part of this effort involves advocacy and January is our online music therapy advocacy kickoff to welcome the upcoming state legislative sessions. This year’s advocacy theme is connection, especially the idea of connecting through stories.

In episode 38 of the Music Therapy Round Table podcast, we will be discussing the power of storytelling and how we use it to advocate for ourselves, our work, and our profession.

Well, first of all, I have clearly been living under a rock, because I didn’t realize you were pregnant, Rachel! Many happy congratulations!

Second, thanks for the podcast, ladies. Now I have a more clear idea of the advocacy approach for this year, so I can go over to my blog and share my latest stories. Good tips, by the way!

Happy new year (and new babies/PhDs) to you all. :- )
