Amy’s Personal Vision Statement for Internship Supervision:
The music therapy internship is a significantly important stage in each music therapist’s training. It is the place where an intern begins to formulate a professional identity while solidifying and uniting course work in the clinical world. I believe that the supervisory relationship is one in which both the supervisor and supervisee leave transformed and learn from one another. I think “outside the box” and challenge my interns to also do so in their clinical placements. The intern must be prepared to work hard, and willing to examine him/herself personally, professionally & musically. As a supervisor, I work equally hard to establish a trusting relationship by being clear about expectations, providing ongoing evaluation and helping to formulate an intern’s professional identity. I have developed a Competency Based Model of Supervision based on the CAMT Competencies that is utilized in internship supervision.
