· This is the first comprehensive textbook on multicultural dimensions of music therapy. The editors pass the literary microphone to the authors—all music therapists who have found belonging and identity in diverse cultures. The authors examine how music therapy is relevant within an individual’s cultural context through personal and scholarly explorations. The chapters are separated into three sections: 1) understanding oppression and bias; 2) minority cultures within North America; and 3) inclusive music therapy practice and education. This focused examination prompts the reader to listen to myriad minority voices and engage in cultural dialogues. Light refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, or you may review and purchase the book at http://www.barcelonapublishers.com/multicultural-intersections-music-health-the-person

Dear Fellow Music Therapists:
I would like to thank you for taking the time to help us with our continued advocacy in RI and to thank you for your support and assistance in passing legislation last year. Your efforts were noted by our legislators.
For those of you who may be hearing this for the first time, last year RI passed legislation to create a registry in the state of RI. The bill passed and we are waiting on the completion of our registry. Unfortunately, our governor has just proposed her budget with an article (article 20) that would repeal the registry passed last year. I have grave concerns regarding the negative impact this could have not only in RI but also in setting a pattern across the country.
I am reaching out again to request assistance in RI. I am attaching a template to send to the representatives in RI (I am also attaching two sets of emails). The most important representative would be the heads of the house committee on finance (Representative Gallison) If you copy or forward correspondence to email@example.com we will also create a database to ensure all testimony was received by the appropriate individuals.
Thank you again for your response and assistance.
