No matter how calm and supportive the therapeutic environment, disruptive and hurtful behaviors can occur in music therapy. Look at (1) factors contributing to difficult situations, (2) effective, pro-active plans for preventing a crisis when possible, and (3) options for responding to and stabilizing difficult incidents or emergencies. Hear tips for making music therapy a pleasant, supportive space welcoming clients to interact and make music.  Note: This e-course was first offered at the 2021 AMTA National Conference as Add-on Course D.  It was recorded for later viewing and access.
