Alliance Conducts Survey on Educational Standards

PRESS RELEASE - The Professional Standards Committee of the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education is working to carry out one of the organization's key goals: to develop standards that guide and inform the effective teaching of massage therapy. This is being examined in the spectrum from entry-level training programs through post-graduate studies.

To guide this process, the Alliance is conducing a brief survey that is open to everyone in the massage education community. Its purpose is to gather information on the attitudes or perceptions regarding: 1) formation of standards for teacher education and massage school curricula; and 2) the Massage Therapy Body of Knowledge.

Responses will help identify the concerns educators would like the Alliance to address, and will inform the process of developing standards. Note that this is a preliminary survey: no work has begun on the actual development of standards. Such work will be guided by the Alliance, with the input from the field as a whole. This survey should take less than five minutes of time to complete.
