Description

BKCM Music Therapy presents a five hour intensive workshop as part of its Continuing Music Therapy Education (CMTE) program.

This five hour CMTE will explore racially responsive clinical practice through experientials and group discussions. The facilitators will call participants to explore their own sociocultural identity and consider how aspects of race, ethnicity, language and culture intersect at the individual and collective-societal levels, creating advantages and disadvantages across these complex dimensions. These themes will be explored as they manifest within supervisory, professional, and therapeutic relationships within the field of music therapy.

A panel discussion led by members of The Mid-Atlantic Region of Music Therapy’s CHADI Committee (Cultural Humility, Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion) will follow the workshop and is open to the public.
