  • Update: Transferring the Distance Learning Programme to Romania

    We will not deliver the DLP to a new cohort of students this year, instead we are seeking to find a recognised Training Provider in Romania to partner with Music as Therapy International and host the Distance Learning Programme. 

    We have consulted our Local Partners, academics and trainers across Romania for guidance, through a questionnaire. You can read the results of this questionnaire here.

    We have formed a Steering Group of 10 Local Partners to help us take forward their recommendations locally. We hope to have identified a suitable local training partner by the end of the year, with whom we will work in 2017 to re-launch the Distance Learning Programme from within Romania

  • Developing Romania's Music Therapy practice

    Enormous thank you to Helen Odell-Miller and colleagues at Anglia Ruskin University for welcoming the leader of Romania's first Masters in Music Therapy, Stela Dragulin (pictured), to their music therapy department as part of an Erasmus exchange.

    And to Sarah Hadley (pictured far left), Judith Nockolds and colleagues in Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust's Music Therapy Service who offered an amazing opportunity yesterday for Mrs. Dragulin and her colleague, Doru Ursutiu, to have firsthand experience of what a large and effective music therapy service looks like.

    We hoped that introducing them would afford opportunities like this, but have been bowled over by the ways in which both organisations have been eager to invest in the development of music therapy in Romania.

  • Recognising our role in the UK

    We have just been made aware that our Interactive Music-Making training was acknowledged within the UCL Institute for Health Equity’s report “Working for Health Equity: The Role of Health Professionals” as an example of good practice.  What better evidence to support us exploring how we extend our work here in the UK, as we are doing with a series of pilot projects this year.  You can read the full report here.

  • UK Consultancy

    Integral to our approach to all our work is capacity building: Helping our Local Partners themselves 'grow' their use of music with the children and adults in their care. In the UK this translates into many different things, including the consultancy we offer music therapists and other organisations to help them strengthen their practice.

    Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust Music Therapy Service invited us to do just this when we undertook a review of their Under 5s Service last year. It was fascinating to return to the team at the end of last week to hear of all the impressive and interesting changes they have been making and the impact they feel the review had on their efficiency and reach.

    We welcome requests for such support from any music therapists.  Do get in touch if you are interested to know more.
