I have so enjoyed during the last 9 months engaging in Washington State Music Therapy issues:
“Music & Creativity, Inspiration For Healing: MusicWorks4Veterans.org enhances quality of life for our Veteran community by leading experienced, all-inclusive music jam programs that encourage creative expression along with peers, in a safe, fun and friendly environment.”
From all these experiences I have come to realize a need for research and writing on the topic of Trauma Informed Music therapy. Time is precious to me. My life with my husband is also precious to me. With these words I find that I must step down from advocacy efforts, from Task Force efforts and any volunteering that takes time away from my research, writing and my husband. I have faith in Music Therapists of Washington State to find time to engage in some part of moving forward the practice and access of music therapy.
I will continue with Task Force activities during licensure efforts - end of January 2019. After which I shall be focusing on research and writing. Thank you all and I do hope to hear from many of you soon!
