We are seeking expressions of interest from experienced Music Therapists to facilitate our experiential training group for first year full time and second year part time students. We are looking for confident and independent practitioners with a commitment to a psychodynamic approach, and an interest in the training experience. An understanding of the specific nature and boundaries of the experiential group within a training course will be essential, along with significant experience of group work with verbal adults. Further training in group work or psychotherapy is desirable.

The group runs on a Monday afternoon (currently from 3.30 – 5.00pm) from September – June, with breaks for academic holidays.

The music therapy programme is situated within the Psychology Department at University of Roehampton (Whitelands College campus), and this year will deliver a newly validated and approved Masters training programme which will include interdisciplinary teaching across Art Psychotherapy, Dance Movement Psychotherapy, Dramatherapy, Play Therapy and Music Therapy training programmes.

The current rate of pay is £48.25 per contact hour, and this hourly rate reflects the requirement for preparation, marking, and taking leave.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working. We are proud of our achievements as a Post 1992 University and continue to build upon them.
