Music Therapy: First Research
Cambridge, February 2002


Call for papers
2nd February, 2002 

Anglia Polytechnic University, East Road, Cambridge. 

Conference Theme: 
The focus will be on presentations by music therapists who have recently completed
(or are in the process of completing) their MA theses and are embarking on new
research projects. It is hoped that ex Anglia Polytechnic University trainees as
well as music therapists who have trained on other music therapy courses will be
presenting work.  Presentations will last half an hour and there will be time
allocated for questions both after each presentation as well as at the end of the
morning and the afternoon. We would encourage you to include video or audio
excerpts where possible.

The conference will be organised jointly by Anglia Polytechnic University (Amelia
Oldfield - APU Research Fellow) and the British Society for Music Therapy (Denize
Christophers - BSMT Administrator).

Conference Publication: 
We are hoping to publish the papers presented at the conference in book form (BSMT
publications). The book will be jointly edited by Amelia Oldfield (APU) and Helen
Odell-Miller (APU). We will aim to have the book ready by the World Music Therapy
Conference to be held in Oxford in July 2002.

If you are interested in submitting a paper, please send us an abstract of your
presentation (maximum length - 250 words). You are invited to call or email Amelia
Oldfield on 01223 885814, if you have any questions or require further
information. Please send your abstract to:  Amelia Oldfield, Music Therapy, The
