[ICAT 5週年 之 #音樂治療資訊站]
嚟到音樂治療資訊站最後一個funfact, 我哋繼續睇下關於 #音樂治療 #受助者 群組嘅 #專科名銜：
#HPMT: Hospice and Palliative Care Music Therapist #臨終及紓緩治療音樂治療師
隨著音樂治療不斷發展，相信越來越多 #註冊音樂治療師 會接受更多 #深造培訓 而獲發唔同嘅專科名銜。咁多英文字母，係咪睇到眼花撩亂呢？有見及此，#美國音樂治療協會 於2010年嘅代表大會中通過喺佢哋所有文件及通訊裡面，只會列出學位名稱，#專業資格 MT-BC和協會認可嘅專業名銜及牌照。除咗學位名稱及 #專業資格 MT-BC會以英文縮寫之外，所有列出嘅專科名銜均會以全寫寫出，方便公眾明白。協會亦強烈鼓勵會員跟隨協會嘅做法，以提高專業資格MT-BC嘅認受性，提升公眾對其他專業培訓嘅認知及減低公眾對各種縮寫嘅混淆。
Let's continue to look at another music therapy designation that are population-specific:
#HPMT: Hospice and Palliative Care Music Therapist
With the blooming of the music therapy profession, it is with no doubt that more therapists will attend specialized/advanced trainings and obtain different designations. While that means the profession is advancing, to the general public all these "alphabets" could cause a lot of confusions. With that concern in mind, in 2010 the Assembly of Delegates of the American Music Therapy Association (#AMTA) adopted the policy that AMTA and its regions will use acronyms only for academic degrees, MT-BC, other credentials, licenses, state registries and music therapy professional designations from other countries (e.g. RMT, MTA). All specialized/advanced training designations will be written out in long form. As the policy being fully implemented in all AMTA's printed and electronic materials and communications in 2012, the Association strongly encourages its members to follow the policy in their own practice. This is to increase the recognition of the credential MT-BC, increase the public's understanding of those specialized/advanced trainings and minimize the confusion of the acronyms in the general public.
