Abstract

Objective: This paper examines the experiences of music therapy students throughout their clinical training. Three surveys inquired about: 1) the perception from both interns and supervisors as to interns’ needs, 2) interns’ preparedness, their skills, their priorities when choosing an internship, and whether their expectations for training were met (with comparisons between American and International respondents), and 3) satisfaction with clinical training. Method: Three separate surveys were distributed. The first survey’s respondents included pre-interns ( n = 19) and internship supervisors (n = 14) who had completed their training in the Great Lakes Region of the United States. The second survey’s respondents included American interns (n = 50), American professionals (n = 353), International interns (n = 12), and International professionals (n = 50). Respondents for the third survey included professional music therapists who completed their curriculum in the United States and held the MT-BC professional credential (N = 777). Results: Some differences between interns’ and supervisors’ perceptions of the interns’ needs were found in Survey 1; significant differences were found between the preparedness and strengths/weaknesses between groups in Survey 2; and Survey 3 found general satisfaction with training with some areas respondents felt needed improvement. Conclusions: While there is overall satisfaction with training for music therapists, there are inconsistencies in students’ experiences in, and perceptions of, their training.

要約

目的:本論文は臨床実習中の音楽療法学生の経験について検討する。三件の調査において、1)実習生及びスーパーバイザーによる実習生のニーズに関する認識、2)実習生の準備度及び技術、実習を選択する際の優先事項、実習が期待に沿うものだったかどうか(米国及び他国の回答者の比較)、3)実習の満足度を尋ねた。方法:異なる三つの調査用紙を配布した。一つ目の調査の回答者は、米国の五大湖地域で実習を行った実習前の学生(n=19)と実習スーパーバイザー(n=14)だった。二つ目の調査の回答者は、米国の実習生(n=50)、米国の音楽療法士(n=353)、他国の実習生(n=12)、他国の音楽療法士(n=50)だった。三つ目の調査の回答者は、米国でカリキュラムを修了し、MT-BC(米国認定音楽療法士)の資格を持つ音楽療法士(n=777)だった。結果:調査1では、実習生のニーズについて、実習生とスーパーバイザーの認識にいくらか違いが見られた。調査2では、準備の度合いないし強み・弱みについて、グループ間で著しく異なった。調査3では、実習の改善が必要だと感じている回答者はいるものの、総じて満足していることが明らかになった。結論:全体的に音楽療法実習において満足している一方で、実習に関する学生の経験及び認識には一貫性がないことが示唆された。
