Advanced competencies in music therapy

Abstract: Contends that the music therapy profession has not devoted adequate attention to ethical issues. Three areas of professional concern are addressed: a specific code of ethics for music therapists, music therapists' abilities to solve ethical problems and prioritize ethical issues, and ethics education for music therapy students and professionals. Research in these 3 areas is summarized, and questions are posed for consideration by those in the field of music therapy. ABSTRACT 2: After completing entry-level training, music therapists are fre- quently called upon to expand their professional roles and responsibilities. With such development comes the need for greater expertise in various areas of the discipline: music, clinical practice, theory, research, creative arts the- rapies, college teaching, supervision, and administration. The purposes of this paper are to identify the areas of knowledge and skills necessary in the expansion of professional roles and responsibilities, and to propose compe- tency objectives for graduate or advanced-level training in music therapy.
