We are nearly finished with the annual event of #MTAdvocacy on social media. In reading through the initial post from December 29, 2013 (check it out here) I have been discerning my fit in one of the three categories.
These three pictures will illustrate my placement as a CONNECTOR.
1. After responding to phone calls and emails from folks inquiring about music therapy services or considering the pursuit of a music therapy degree, this photo is included as the first example. Enjoy the challenge of searching for the Certification Board for Music Therapists Lapel Pins, north of the Duquesne Pendant and attached to an uplifting card from a former student. I feel an obligation to encourage folks to ensure music therapists are board certified... whether for observational purposes or clinical needs.
2. Rolling around tote bags and briefcases has enhanced my ability to explain what music therapy services may entail. This second snapshot is a practical way of advocating the purpose of our visits as music therapists, while keeping us more organized as private practitioners and keeping us focused on our own health and longevity with wheeled totes.
Thanks for viewing this post & please share comments or testimonies below of how you have witnessed music therapy advocacy. Happy new year!
