Applications open for CPD Short Course in 'Collaborative Music Practice for Health' – deadline 19 April 2021

The Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research (Anglia Ruskin University) and Britten Pears Arts are offering an upcoming opportunity to take part in the pilot of a new continuing professional development course. The course is aimed at performing musicians and music therapists interested in working in health and care settings, building on the Together in Sound project, a group music therapy initiative for people living with dementia and their care companions, which is a partnership between CIMTR and Saffron Hall Trust.

The course includes residential and online components, taking place in May-July 2021 and will be led by Claire Molyneux, Senior Lecturer in Music Therapy at ARU. Completion of this accredited course will result in receipt of a postgraduate certificate of credit. For this pilot delivery of the course, all course fees are provided free of charge and participants will contribute to the evaluation process of the pilot project.
