This is really becoming a hot topic in the world of music therapy. If you have been reading my blog for the last few months, then you may have guessed that I am not a huge fan of the idea of making music therapists get licensed in every state. Unfortunately, it looks like the train may have left the station on this development. The news article says that fifteen more states are pursuing a license for music therapy!  My wish in a perfect world would be that we could get the MT-BC (national board certification) recognized for purposes of reimbursement and professional identity.  I am afraid that once we open the door to government sanction it may become a Pandora's box of unwanted influence in the future.  But don't let my opinions be yours!  What do you think about this issue?
