It is essential that we are accountable and can prove the efficacy of our practice. British Music Therapists are working hard to compile a bank of evidence to support our work. This helps us to communicate the process of our practice with other professionals, to engage further referrers and develop our work.
We share the most up-to-date music therapy research via our blogs and social media and we also publish the findings of our projects. Our most recent work entitled ‘An exploration in to the efficacy of music therapy with Deaf populations’ in collaboration with Action for Deafness can be shared upon request. Following every collaboration, pilot and project we review, collate and make public our findings. Please contact us for any further information or click on the icons to link to the NHS, British Medical Journal, British Association of Music Therapy or the Cochrane Library.
‘Music Therapist’ is a protected title and all music therapists are allied health professionals who must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). British music therapists have Masters degrees and throughout their career engage in monthly supervision and continued CPD.
