AbstractProposed is the launching of a pilot community music therapy (CoMT) project. The intent is that the program be grant funded in whole or in part, and utilized as an adjunctive therapy for adults who receive services from the nonprofit organization Cerebral Palsy of Westchester (CPW). The project includes a comprehensive three-step process of active music making. It will begin at the David G. Osterer Center in Rye Brook, NY with group music therapy sessions focused on trust building; continue with the addition of community musicians to support and enhance the project; and conclude with a public performance.

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 Historical documents and existing literature were examined to set the context for the event, including the histories of both previous associations.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.
A heuristic study on music-centered supervisionDoak, Timothy D. (2018-05)This first-person study investigated how a music-centered (Modified Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music) supervision contributed to understanding the role of music therapy when working with clients diagnosed with a Disorder of Consciousness during a Masters Fellowship. Data was collected from three sources; a) transcriptions from Dr. Heather Wagner and Ms. Madelaine Ventre, b) personal experience, c) and mandalas drawn during the supervision session. This data was analyzed to answer the following research questions; “How does music-centered supervision help deepen my understanding of working with children diagnosed with Disorders of Consciousness?” and “What do my mandalas reveal about my experience working with children diagnosed with Disorders of Consciousness?” Qualitative methods of interrogation, interpretation, and triangulation were utilized in order to discover the answers to the research questions. Through careful analysis of the data, four themes were present during the music-centered supervision process: nurturance and containment, preparation, discomfort, and new energy. Each theme provided a deeper understanding to the various stages of the supervision process. This study also provides evidence of the benefits of music-centered supervision for music therapists, especially during their studies and training.
