Certificate in Supportive Music and Imagery (SMI) - Level 1 GIM training

18 March 2022 to 27 March 2022

SMI is an evidence-based approach used to help clients develop and deepen
the connection to their inner strengths and resources. The process involves
the client drawing (or engaging in other expressive arts) whilst listening
to music. As a manualised method, SMI is suitable for short-term therapy
(e.g. 6 sessions) which can be effectively delivered online as well as in
person to help meet the needs of diverse individuals and groups. SMI is both
a systematic and a flexible, client-centred approach. There is an emphasis
on collaboration, with clients supported to choose the music used which can
potentially be of diverse traditions, cultures and genres. The course is
open to qualified music therapists with a minimum of one-year's
post-qualification experience. Further information about SMI and the course,
along with an application form, can be found at
