LogoMARS Trans

The intellectual outputs of the MARS (Music and Resilience Support) project, are now freely avaiable online.

The Needs Analysis represents the obligatory first step in the development of a specialized training which aims to respond as closely as possible to the needs of the context it will serve. The design of the training course depends a clear concept of exactly what a community musician or music therapist needs to know and be able to do, in order to plan and implement psycho-social interventions within the target communities to the best possible effect.

The MARS specialization profile, developed on the basis of the Needs Analysis Report, provides information about the required skills of the the community musician/music therapist relative to the specific work context of deprived and marginalized communities. The work profile is described in terms of the emergent objectives, strategies and tactics of psychosocial music interventions aimed at protecting these communities against defined risk factors. Specific knowledge and skills supporting theoretical, methodological and practical competences are listed.

The MARS Staff Training Guidelines is a supporting document for the project partnership's teaching staff. The Guidelines promote the project ethos, aim to establish a unified pedagogic approach, and provide a platform for the MARS staff to assimilate current research and theory, together with contextual needs and resources in psychosocial music intervention.

These and other relevant documents are free to download.

Moreover, the website has become a platfom for sharing about psyco-social music intervention and related fields.

It hosts a matching service for both professional and organisations, a list of links and resources and the complete overview of the first MARS course with examples, videos, modules and assignments.
