Developing Guidelines for Group Music Therapy for Chronic Depression


-       Are you currently providing music therapy within a Community Mental Health Team?


-       Do you have ideas on how music therapy can best be provided for chronic depression in the community?


-       Are you interested in hearing what other music therapists are doing and sharing your own ideas and innovations?


We are currently seeking music therapists to take part in group discussions (focus groups) to develop a specific group music therapy intervention for chronic depression in the community. Four focus groups are planned to happen in East London during July 2016. If it is not possible for you to attend one of these groups, we can also arrange an individual interview at a time to suit you.


Information about what taking part would involve is attached
