EXPLORING RECENTLY QUALIFIED MUSIC THERAPISTS’ EXPERIENCE OF INTUITION DURING MUSIC THERAPY SESSIONS WITH INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS
Author: Kelly Fraser
Institution: University of Roehampton Call for Participants
My name is Kelly Fraser and I am a student on the Music Therapy MA course at the University of Roehampton. I am looking to recruit three recently qualified music therapists with a maximum of 3 years clinical experience to participate in my project. Participants will be practising in the UK and working with a variety of clients in different clinical settings and/or in private practice. Participation involves a single interview of up to one hour long, which will be held virtually via Zoom in July 2021. Project description
This research project intends to contribute to the small but growing body of research that explores the value and reliability of intuition as a therapeutic tool to support the development of the therapeutic relationship. This is of particular relevance to the relationship building in music therapy, as it oscillates between music and words.
An initial review of the literature has revealed a significant gap in research on the phenomenon in music therapy in the UK.The theme of clinical experience is pertinent in the research findings thusfar and therefore I aim to extend upon the current research by illuminating the experiences of newly qualified music therapists.
