What is the Inner Circle?
Part 1- The Music Therapy Inner Circle Meetings
You went into music therapy to make a difference. Its frustrating that sometimes there are bumps in the road such as difficult clients, not enough time, not enough money, no support, administrative changes, or maybe you find yourself in a new setting scrambling for ideas or you just want a like minded peer to bounce ideas off of.
Whether you're the only music therapist (or allied health professional) for miles around or you have a team of others that you work with, consider the benefits of investing an hour and a half a month to meet online with professional peers with an array of experiences from all over the world to network, share, brainstorm, give and receive support, and more - all from the comfort of home! You don't have to drive anywhere, and can even wear your slippers.
The Music Therapy Inner Circle meets online for 90 minutes the last Sunday of the month at 4:30 Pacific, 5:30 Mountain, 6:30 Central, 7:30 Eastern, and I'm not sure of the time in other countries but you are welcome too.
Once you join, you will have access to all monthly meetings during your 12 month membership which starts the date of purchase. We take a break during the month of December and if the meeting falls on a holiday we reschedule for a different week that month. Attend at least 9 times to earn 16 credits for from these meetings alone, plus, to complete this package deal, (yes this is a package deal!) you also get to take a class of your choice worth up to 7 credits (see Part 2).
You'll have an opportunity to meet your ethics requirement within the context of the inner circle meetints, effortlessly, as we take 15-20 minutes each meeting to review ethical issues and discuss sections of the documents regulating the music therapy profession. This will keep details of your practice sharp and on track.
If you present in-services at work, or want to present at a conference or anywhere else, you can have the opportunity to run it by your peers for review. Sally Bonkrude MA, MT-BC, LPC facilitates the group and is an expert speaking and presentation coach and can get you prepared in all ways.
Everyone loves to help each other troubleshoot difficult cases, and you'll get to share your wins from the month. Bonds are created. We all learn from each other. And did I mention that its a confidential group? We create a safe space to share and be vulnerable.
Attending these meetings earns you 16 CMTE credits and meets your ethics requirement.
