DRUMBEAT: In Search of Belonging
Faulkner, Simon
Youth Studies Australia, v30 n2 p9-14 Jun 2011
DRUMBEAT is a flexible program that combines experiential learning with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and engages young people and adults who may be anxious or resistant to "talk based" therapies. The DRUMBEAT program is taught to young people and adults across Australia in schools, youth services, drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities, child protection residential facilities, mental health services, refugee trauma associations and prisons. Participants lift their self-esteem, learn to work cooperatively with others and are exposed to the therapeutic and recreational benefits of music. The program is a useful tool, effective at engaging a wide range of young people and practical in its application. (Contains 3 tables.)
