Arts Therapists work with clients with Eating Disorders
This survey will take only 5 minutes to complete.
As part of my final year research into the arts therapies with clients with eating disorders, I am conducing a short questionnaire (estimated to be 5 minutes) with UK certified creative arts therapists who work or have previously worked with clients with eating disorders. The research aims to investigate to what extent music, art and dramatherapists are working with clients with eating disorders within the UK.
I am inviting you to participate in this study by filling out the short questionnaire. Any participation would be hugely helpful for the study and greatly appreciated. The questionnaire is estimated to take 5 minutes and submission of the questionnaire assumes consent to participate in this study. The following link will take you to the questionnaire:
This questionnaire will be open until the 1st March 2021. I would greatly appreciate if you could further pass this email on to anybody who might interested in taking part in the research.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider this and no problem if you are unable to circulate this.

A survey will be sent out shortly through BAMT. They call all music therapists working in this field to complete the survey to provide us with a better understanding of the work that is currently taking place in this field. The survey will look at the prevalence of music therapy in acute ward settings in the NHS for people living with dementia, along with approaches used and how the work has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Music Therapists’ Perspectives on the Application of Psychodynamic Theories in Online Music Therapy
Please contact: Simon Perry (Student) Simon2.Perry@live.uwe.ac.uk
This project aims to investigate the experiences of music therapists who have applied psychodynamic theories to their work in online therapy. The aim is to explore how music therapists perceive and apply psychodynamic elements when working with a client in a separate location, as physical proximity is thought to be a critical factor in enabling psychodynamic processes. Data collection will take place through online interviews with participants who self-identify at least to some extent as psychodynamically-oriented in their approach and have experience of working with at least one client online.
Request for an interview for a student article - The effect of music therapy on people with dementia
Please contact: Anna Bury email@example.com
My project is to write an article (of about 2000 words) about the effect of music therapy on people with dementia. Music therapy is not a very well known method, at least in France, and I want to talk about the different benefits that the patients can take out of it. I also want to describe t the proceeding of a music therapy session and what are the facilities that are being built for this kind of therapy. I will submit my article to Nelson Graves the founder of the website News-Decoder. This site is created to foster media literacy among new generation. The articles on the site are written by student new ambassador. If my article is published it would be a great opportunity for me to receive editorial feedback and also a great personal satisfaction.
Music & Dementia Dissertation - recruiting participants for research
Please contact: Rachel Austerberry (Student) Rachel2.Austerberry@live.uwe.ac.uk
Evaluations of music therapy with people living with dementia have indicated that this can improve participants’ mood encouraging interaction and helping carers to feel more connected to them (Melhuish et al, 2019, p.23). However, the nature of these positive changes including what elements of music are most effective is not clear. I will explore what participants involved in providing music in residential care (i.e., music therapists, musicians, and residential staff) perceive as positive changes for residents with dementia that they work with, asking them to identify any changes they have observed during and after music activities, including the use of language, non-verbal communication, and mood.
