Thank you #FLMusicTherapy task force for this great #mtadvocacy video! Quoted from the YouTube posting: “Board Certified Music Therapists (MT-BC) along with clients, supervisors, facility partners, families, and other community members are advocating for state recognition of the MT-BC credential through the form of a music therapy registry. Currently under review by the Florida House of Representatives (House Bill 571) and Senate (Senate Bill 204), music therapy registry would protect clients from harm that can occur, intentionally or not, when untrained professionals use music interventions with a variety of populations. This also has the potential to increase client access to services through grants and other funding through the state and local government. Finally, the registry will ensure that all board-certified music therapists (MT-BC) will have to be listed on the Florida registry before providing music therapy services across the state.
