The Laurier Centre for Music Therapy Research (LCMTR) is the first university-based centre in Canada and only the fourth in the world. The overall focus of the centre will be to strengthen and shape the status of professional music therapy and music therapy research in Canada. The LCMTR will create a synergy among the research team members' areas of expertise, combining approaches and theoretical models to further the study of music therapy and its impact throughout the world. The LCMTR will provide a context for a wide variety of research and educational initiatives, involving and ultimately benefiting undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students, and music therapy professionals and researches in music therapy and allied disciplines.
