The purpose of this AMTA E-course, Self-Care for Music Therapists: Insight from Experienced MT-BCs, is to provide a practical resource to help music therapists explore the topic of self-care and to get some ideas from the personal and professional experiences of their music therapy colleagues. Self-care is a topic best addressed from several different angles since music therapists have such different personalities and vastly different experiences in our daily lives, and because we all approach our professional careers from different perspectives. We invited eleven experienced music therapists to provide 10-15 minute audio segments talking about self-care from their viewpoint, sharing a few tips and telling a short story or two about keeping their lives centered in the midst of the ups and downs of their music therapy career. Publication date: December 2016.
- Objective 1: The E-course participant will take time to listen to presentations by eleven experienced music therapy colleagues to learn more about the professional issue of self-care. (CBMT Board Certification Domain IV. B. &.)
- Objective 2: Based on information and ideas in the e-course discussions by their music therapy colleagues, the participant will assess the current state of their own process for self-care, and will set a minimum of three goals for improving their personal and professional self-care. (CBMT Board Certification Domain IV.A.1.)
