Background

This poster discusses the variety of interests that may be developed as research projects for the dissertation assignment by students at the University of South Wales. It speculates on the importance of following one’s passion in this work, suggesting this is an important part of meaningful research.

The Development of Researchful Capacity in Music Therapy Students

Bruscia (1995) gives the following definition of research: “a systematic, self-monitored inquiry which leads to a discovery or new insight, which, when documented and disseminated, contributes to or modifies existing knowledge or practice” (p. 21). To add to this, Ansdell and Pavlicevic (2000) suggest that practitioners may do well to select an area of personal interest for their enquiry, as this may prove a motivation and inspiration to the endeavour.

Areas of research interests amongst students and professionals are often those which arouse a personal as well as professional interest. When music therapy students begin to develop their own therapeutic personas, it can be important for them to recognise and work with those areas of practice which stimulate interest for them personally (Burns and Meadows 2017).

Discussion and Conclusion

As dissertation supervisors, we have noticed that it is often pre-existing interests, passions, if you will, that evoke the most effective and considered dissertation submissions. A selection of projects will be presented and explored in the poster to illustrate this position.
