    The Ethical Music Therapist: Spotlight on Decision Making


    March 1, 2018

    9:00am-12:00pm

    Salon A (Ontario Gateway Hotel)

    Wendy S. Woolsey, M.A., MT-BC


    ***Limited number of spaces available***


    Ethics is arguably the most important aspect of clinical practice for music therapists because it permeates every aspect of the profession. Using a combination of didactic, experiential, and small group work, participants will define what it means to be an “Ethical Music Therapist” and identify tools that can be used when making ethical decisions. Secondly, participants will apply Dileo’s Model for Ethical Decision Making to ethical dilemmas in the areas of clinical practice, social media, working with students/interns, and professional relationships.


    Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will define what it means to be an “Ethical Music Therapist” (BCD IV.A.1-7; IV.B.1-20).
    2. Participants will identify one tool (e.g., Codes of Ethics) that can be used in making ethical decisions (BCD IV.B.1-20).
    3. Participants will identify one ethical dilemma relevant to their area(s) of clinical or professional practice (CBD IV.A.1).
    4. Participants will apply Dileo’s Model for Ethical Decision Making to an ethical dilemma provided by the presenters in at least one of the following areas: clinical practice (BCD IV.B.4); working with students and interns (BCD IV.B.11); use of social media (BCD IV.B.10); and professional relationships (CBD IV.B.8).

    Room 310 (Ontario Gateway Hotel)

    3 CMTEs


    Shelbe White, MM, MT-BC

    Grace O'Leary, MT-BC


    This discussion and workshop will explore non-musical assessment, including the evidence base to support it and ways to implement it into your practice. Attendees will learn how to conduct non-musical assessment for individuals and groups, why non-musical assessment is beneficial to independent and interdisciplinary work, and how to find or develop your own non-musical assessment tools. This session is meant to be a collaborative discussion where music therapy students and professionals at all levels can engage with the idea of non-musical assessment and share and gain the knowledge to build effective assessment tools.


    Learning Objectives:

    1. By the time they leave this session, participants will demonstrate the ability to develop a non-musical assessment for at least four domain areas including cognitive, psycho-social, motor, and communication for at least one population (I. B3a-B3h, B8, B9, B10).
    2. By the end of this session, clients will demonstrate understanding of how non-musical assessment can improve the effectiveness of music therapy treatment planning both on its own and in an interdisciplinary context by removing biases, extraneous variables, and opportunities for misinterpretation of results by the music therapist or other professionals (I. C1, C2, C3, C5)
