Undergraduate Music Therapy Students’ Experiences in Short-term Group Music Therapy
2nd Annual Conference of the Qualitative Research Review
Fort Lauderdale, FL
Education of undergraduate music therapy students poses numerous difficulties because of the need for personal development, as well as specific clinical and musical skills. This collaborative qualitative study examined the potential benefits of students’ participation as clients in short-term personal music therapy. Qualitative analysis of participants’ writings revealed the impact on the students’ personal and professional development, and raised questions about potential curricular changes.
