MHTP holds a conference every other year. 

2020 Conference: June 18-20 in Boston/Cambridge, MA

We are excited to announce that MHTP will once again host its much anticipated conference in 2020. The dates of the conference are June 18-20, and we are partnering with Longy School of Music of Bard College to host the conference in Cambridge, MA, near Boston.

The conference promises to deliver speakers and presenters on cutting-edge research and therapeutic music topics, as well as engaging sessions, networking with peers, and continuing education.

Additional details, including registration, housing options, and a conference schedule overview, will be announced in the coming months.

For now, mark the dates on your calendar and plan to join us. Help us make this an historic event for CMPs and MHTP, and consider supporting the $20 for 2020 Campaign.

CEU Sale in lieu of the 2018 conference

Your MHTP Directors regret that we were not able to offer you the education and camaraderie that are hallmarks of our conferences in 2018.

We know that he MHTP conferences have always been one of many ways CMPs accrue CEUs, with up to 20 CEUs awarded when they attend the entire conference. This greatly helps our graduates meet the requirement of 40 CEUs every 4 years. The Directors want to help provide an alternative to the conference for attaining CEUS, so MHTP is offering a special sale for graduates who attend any of the modules through the end of 2019. 

CMPs always pay only half price for re-taking modules, and now we are offering an even deeper discount based on the number of CEUs granted per module. For a limited time, CMPs will pay only $10.00 per CEU hour. Thus Modules 1 through 4 will cost only $150 and Module 5 only $200.  Modules 1 through 4 are worth 15 CEUs, and Module 5 is worth 20 CEUs. 

Curriculum offered in our modules has changed quite a lot in the past few years, so the other benefit is that you get new information and more in-depth understanding when you re-take modules.

See the calendar for module dates and locations, and then register for the module(s) you'd like to re-take.

2016 conference:  Navigating the Tides of Healthcare

MHTP’s 2016 Conference was held July 14 -17, 2016 at The Presentation Center➚ in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains of Los Gatos, California.  MHTP had this lovely conference center to itself, including buildings, pool, spacious and interesting grounds in the redwoods, and hiking trails.

The theme, Navigating the Tides of Healthcare, was intended to inform attendees about new developments in healthcare and how it impacts use of complementary healing modalities, especially therapeutic music.  We will have conference recordings available for purchase.

You might be interested in a song composed by Ruth and Elizabeth Cunningham (PDF download) that we played and sang together at the conference.

The audio files from the 2016 conference are available in our online store. If you do not want to purchase the conference audio files online, you can mail this form with your check to order offline.

Listening to conference audio files and answering a short essay question awards a number of CEUs that are assigned depending on the length of the sessions. Download the CEU quiz here. For more information about continuing education units, go to our CEU page.
