The focus of this SIG will be to look at the emerging and developing evidence and research on telehealth music therapy with persons across the lifespan both in individual and group therapy, as well as participating in telehealth from varied locations (home, hospital, long-term care, group home etc). SIG members represent music therapists working: with a specific demographic, with various diagnoses, and / or within a specific clinical approach (i.e. NMT, The Bonny Method).
