How can you measure impact factors between the therapist and the client?

Working as a counselor in the addiction field, I am drawn in to an argument that recovering addicts make better addiction counselors than counselors who have not experienced addiction. I am avoiding this direct question in an effort to incorporate a more authentic response and in part preparing a paper with the essence of this question in mind.

Impact factor has become a specialized term for rating the professional journals. The question may be re-framed replacing impact factor with some other suitable words.

What should musicians’ health education sound like? The floor is yours!

The physical and psychological demands of the training and practice that musicians must achieve to perform to a high standard can produce deleterious effects on their health and wellbeing. However, music conservatoires still endorse practices that are informed by tradition more than evidence, while health literacy and critical thinking are still not embedded in music students’ core training. Finally, there are no guidelines or regulations regarding what conservatoires should provide in terms of health education.
We want to address that AND we need your help!
We invite psychologists (both researchers and practitioners, from any specialism and not restricted to those who work with musicians) to join us in this discussion! We have prepared comprehensive lists of topics and we shall discuss their relevance and priority in small groups. Additionally, we will brainstorm ideas about what other topics might be needed as part of the conservatoires’ curricula.
Places are free, but limited. While we prioritise psychologists (due to the nature of our task and topic focus), we also welcome:
- Health professionals working with musicians
- Philosophers (yes, yes! We’d also like to discuss cognitive biases and logical fallacies!)
- Cognitive scientists
- Specialists in music education
- PhD students in any of the topics above
For any queries, please contact the organisers: Raluca Matei, AHRC-funded PhD student in music psychology: | +44 757 061 2760 OR
