Dr. Petra Kern, originally from Germany, has a unique perspective on the world of music therapy. As president of the World Federation of Music Therapy, she interacts with professionals from all corners of the map. She understands what it will take for the profession to continue to grow and develop. Dr. Kern was gracious enough to participate in a 40-minute interview, via skype. We covered many topics, and had a great time discussing various issues regarding music therapy as a global profession. Because of its length, I will be releasing this interview in three parts. There is a lot of good information, and I want you to be able to read it all without getting exhausted. Click the link below to read part one.
