This subject provides students with independent placements in music therapy as part of their capstone experience. Placements will be initiated by the student in most cases, and students will have the opportunity to establish novel music therapy programs informed by the latest theories and research about contemporary practices. In Hospital or community settings, students will design a program that is suitable to the context and will then deliver the program, taking responsibility for sessions where appropriate and evaluating and measuring benefit of the intervention. Tutorials will focus on professional development, and experiential group learning. Placements will be supervised by a local professional staff member as well as peer group intervision.
