Gender Awareness in Music Therapy

28 March 2023

In this training, participants will gain a greater understanding of the gender spectrum and the unique challenges faced by gender-non-conforming clients and therapists. They will also learn how to challenge their assumptions around gender without judgement towards clients and ourselves. A sensitive approach to working with issues of gender, with clients and in wider work contexts, will be discussed. 

This training is led by Alice Nicholls (they/she) who will draw on their professional and personal experience of working as a non-binary music therapist.

This training is suitable for cisgender music therapists who want a better understand of gender identity issues or who want to do gender-affirming work. Also for Music Therapists who might be questioning or exploring their own gender and wish to learn more about working with clients who identify similarly to them.
