Online facilitated Peer Supervision
In line with the CBMT Board Certification Domains, Tempo! offers peer supervision for fellow music therapists who are seeking supervision. Our Team is comprised of MT-BC's in good standing, the majority of whom have Master's level training or have sufficient years of experience to provide feedback.
"Tempo has been a Godsend. Supervision is an ethical necessity, but is prohibitively expensive, especially for new MTs. Tori is an exceptional group facilitator and makes a serious effort to make sure you have the resources you need to be a successful clinician. In the group I have learned how to cope with being the only MT in my workplace; was encouraged to reassess my career goals; and was equipped with practicals to about compassion fatigue."
- J.P. (Music Therapist from the Mid-Atlantic Region)
These sessions are by appointment only with an experienced board certified music therapist from Tempo! Music Therapy Services. Individual supervision is helpful for those clinicians who need or are looking for a more individualized and focused supervision experience. Issues may arise in a therapist's practice that require more focused attention and a need to delve in deeper on one's on schedule. These sessions will be specifically tailored to the supervisee focusing on problem-solving and in-depth processing. This individualized service aids in decreasing the risk for burn-out, professional brown out and compassion fatigue. At the same time, individual supervision can promote professional revitalization and a sense of support that is essential for any helping profession. Note: This service is not approved by the CBMT for credit.
