AbstractThe following document is an in-depth proposal for expanding a part-time music therapy program in a medical setting focused on the needs and concerns of people who are struggling to recover from an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. The enlarged program would include a full-time music therapist with expanded responsibilities.This proposal has been designed for the HealthAlliance programs in Kingston, New York: First Step Detoxification Program and the First Step Rehabilitation Program at Benedictine Hospital, the Outpatient Program at Bridge Back South. The needs of patients recovering from alcohol and drug misuse are specific to their stage in the recovery process, detoxification, early rehabilitation, or longer-term rehabilitation. This proposed music therapy program addresses the specific needs of the patient at each stage of the recovery process. This proposal focuses on the needs of the patients, describes details of the actual program, and shows how the music therapy program integrates into the larger context of the medical program. Finally, it lays out the financial needs of the proposed music therapy program and its expected outcomes. This proposal will demonstrate how a strong, integrated music therapy program can assist in the care and healing of people suffering from substance misuse and how to address its underlying causes.

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 Historical documents and existing literature were examined to set the context for the event, including the histories of both previous associations.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.
Creating community, home, and resources with music therapy: a program proposal for Family of WoodstockPomerselig, Noah (2021-05)The following is a proposal for the implementation of a music therapy program for adolescents experiencing homelessness within Family of Woodstock’s continuum of care. This proposal outlines the rationale and theoretical justification of this program as well as outlining the content and structure of the proposed music therapy services. This proposal includes descriptions of music therapy in general and how it has been implemented with this population in other programs. This program is designed to be implemented by one full-time music therapist and integrates with the existing services provided by the organization. The integration of a music therapy program is congruent with Family of Woodstock’s mission statement and organization goals.
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.
