In this podcast series, Luke Annesley talks to music therapists and others about music therapy and related topics. 





Music Therapy Conversations - Anna Maratos

In the seventh episode of Music Therapy Conversations, Luke Annesley talks to Anna Maratos. Anna started her career as a music therapist in adult mental health in 1997, and gradually moved into increasingly senior management positions, culminating in her current post as Head of Arts Psychotherapies in Central and Northwest London NHS Foundation Trust. She talks about her changing strategy towards research, as well as instigating a move towards mentalisation based practice at CNWL. Anna delivered a keynote at the 2014 BAMT conference in Birmingham, in which she attempted to identify common ground between different theoretical perspectives towards music therapy. We discuss whether she still sees divisions within the UK profession, three years on.

Music Therapy Conversations - Dr. Catherine Carr

In the third episode of Music Therapy Conversations, Luke Annesley talks to Dr. Catherine Carr about music therapy research in general, and some of her own research in adult mental health in particular. They discuss the relationship between training and research, as well as some of the challenges that the music therapy researcher faces. Is research inevitably reductive, or are there ways of doing research in music therapy which meet the requirements of evidence-based practice, whilst also capturing the essential details of the work? Perhaps, most importantly, what can and should clinicians do to stay up to date with the latest research developments?
