|Subject Overview:||This subject will provide information about working in new and emerging contexts in the community and in medical settings. Lecture topics will promote the development of innovative approaches to music therapy in response to the needs of clients in contemporary contexts. This subject will challenge students to utilise music therapy theory from traditional fields in developing appropriate programs and methods of intervention in group and individual work.
