Professional Development Committee

Professional Development Committee Mission

The mission of our Professional Development Committee is to support our members through high-quality professional development to maintain The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music. Specifically, the PD committee:

  • creates professional development opportunities through conference presentations, special educational advancement offerings and refresher courses, and
  • addresses the continuing education certification documentation needs for GIM practitioners.

AMI – Continuing Education Credits 

Due to changes in reciprocity between the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), AMI will no longer offer CEs accepted by NBCC for Counselors.  We understand that this change will impact some AMI Members and The AMI Professional Development committee encourages members whom are affected by this change to contact the relevant professional organization or licensure board for more information regarding the ways one might earn CE credits for participation in AMI sponsored educational events.

AMI is an approved provider with the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) and at this time will continue to offer Continuing Music Therapy Education credits approved by CBMT.

Professional Development Opportunities

If you are interested in posting events, presentations, and workshops that will facilitate the continuing education of AMI fellows, please contact Sherry Raley, Professional Development Chair. We will be developing a calendar for these opportunities to be posted on this web page.
