An historical perspective of the unification of the american music therapy association: an oral historyHardy, Rachel A. (2018-12)This paper is an historical look at the unification of the National Association of Music Therapy (NAMT) and the American Association for Music Therapists (AAMT) to form the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). Historical documents and existing literature were examined to set the context for the event, including the histories of both previous associations. Three individuals who played significant roles in the process of unification were interviewed about the process of unification as well as its comparison to present day decisions. Their perspectives and experiences are presented in this paper.
Family-centered music therapy in the hospitalization treatment of children: a systematic reviewSimpson-Abrams, Eva C. (2018-05)A family-centered approach is becoming more widely used in the treatment of hospitalized children. In general, the involvement of the family is becoming more of a focus during the treatment process in music therapy. Medical music therapy research has grown that examines the benefits of using music therapy in medical settings. However, there are few studies that examine the individual perspectives of children and parents experiencing hospitalization, and how family-centered music therapy addresses these specific, expressed needs. The aim of this systematic review is to examine the needs of parents and children in order to support the use of family-centered music therapy care in children’s hospitals and to further family-centered music therapy research. Thorough database searches were used to gather data for this review, which was then synthesized in order to create common themes. These themes reflect how researchers should approach future endeavors to understand the hospitalization experience and how family-centered music therapy studies should be conducted.
Music therapy at the children's hospital of the king's daughters : a music therapy program for the pediatric hospital in Norfolk, VABowie, Rebecca (2019-05)This proposal is for a full-time music therapist position at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia. There is a wide range of physical/medical, psychosocial, and cognitive goals that need to be addressed for children in the hospital environment, to treat them most effectively and efficiently. Music therapy can achieve many of these goals in a significantly effective and long-lasting way. It is also a cost-effective way to achieve these goals. By establishing a positive rapport with the patient, family, and medical staff, the music therapist provides treatment aimed at the overall improvement and health of the children and their families. The full-time music therapist will work both individually and in group settings, utilizing a variety of techniques, instruments, and skills to address these goals. The addition of music therapy at this hospital will benefit the patients, families, staff, and overall hospital environment.
