Frequently Asked Questions

How does this work?

Once you become a member, you will immediately gain access to your community dashboard. From here you will have access to the resource library that is continually growing with new intervention ideas, slideshows, visuals, informational downloads, implementation videos, and more.

You’ll be sent monthly resource emails, links for zoom calls, and be given access to the private Facebook group. Your membership lasts for one year from purchase date and you get locked in at that price if you decide to stay for more than one year. The cost of the community does increase with time due to the increase in resources. You earn the 15 CMTE’s by attending or watching the group consultation calls starting with the month you joined the community!

Why do I need to know this information to be a great clinician/educator?

As trusted adults in a child’s life, it is imperative that we are aware of child development and feel prepared with verbal processing skills. EVERY child has mental health and we can all support positive well-being through developing our understanding of trauma-informed care, child mental health, and play development. We can then expand our ability to use child counseling skills for every child and support their creative resiliency.

What is the cost?

The cost for March 2021 is $254, paid once per year or in monthly installments. If you join now, you will get locked in at that yearly price for the whole time that you would like to be a member. However, each time our community opens, the price will increase for new members who join due to the increasing amount of resources within the library.

Why does this open only twice per year to limited members?

To uphold the quality of the community experience, it is imperative that this community have a limited amount of new members every six months. It is not in any way to exclude anyone but to maintain the highest quality possible and intimacy that such a group deserves. Every six months, the member quota will grow, but it will be limited (similar to taking classes in college– there really is limited space!) So hop on the waiting list now!

What are in the e-mails I get each month?

Each month, you’ll be sent a curated email that includes informational downloads, intervention ideas, and an implementation video. These resources will follow along with the monthly theme, which you can see on our schedule. This will be sent a week or two ahead of our scheduled consultation call so you can have time to review it and come up with questions or ideas for the group call. Then at our group consultations all, we will go over these materials and discuss implementation ideas, questions, and concerns. Notes from the group consultation call will be sent to you via e-mail and will be available in the resource library.

What are the topics we will cover in the group consultation calls?

Here is a schedule and list of the topics we will cover in the upcoming year. There will be time to cover additional topics and it is encouraged to share what supports you need so we can create those resources for you and put them in the library!

What are the group consultation calls like?

The most fun ever (but I am biased!) Each call we will go over information, resources, and clinical examples on a particular topic that is sent out each month. From here, we will open up to questions and focus on how to apply this information into your sessions and your work! Notes from the group consultation call will be sent to you via e-mail and will be available in the resource library.

How do I get the CMTE credits?

In order to receive the 15 CMTE credits, you will have to attend and/or watch 15 recorded group consultation calls starting with the date you joined and ending with the last month of your membership. At the end of your year, you will get an e-mail with links to the evaluation and the post-test. Once you pass the post-test, you will be sent a pre-approved CBMT certificate!

Can I join for just one month?

Unfortunately, no. At this time the membership is an annual commitment with the option to pay monthly or annually.

Is this just for music therapists?

No! Clinicians, educators, caregivers, and parents can find this space incredibly useful to develop their knowledge of children as well.

Are there special rates for students or groups?

Yes! Please reach out and email me to learn about the special rates!

What do I get discounts on?

What supports are available and/or how accessible is the community?

We will have transcripts available for all videos in the library that are previously recorded. We are open to including more supports as well and hope to create those supports for our fellow community members. Feel free to reach out and let me know what supports you may need!
