About this event

DRUMBEAT - Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts

Do you work with young people experiencing complex issues?

Are they are at-risk of social isolation, disengagement and do they require additional mental health support?

If yes, then DRUMBEAT Facilitator Training is for you.

Holyoake's DRUMBEAT program is an evidence-based program that combines the power of group drumming with structure conversations to explore what connects us and build resilience.

Program Testimonials

"The games and activities which promote fun and sharing of information have been a catalysts for personal discussions and problem solving within the group. It has been rewarding to witness some students with leadership qualities, leading discussions to solve others problems in positive and supportive ways. The program has enabled some quieter students to become more assertive in this setting, which has flowed on to the classroom." Janelle Wheatley, Specialist Educator

"A brilliant addition to my therapy toolkit, just what we need to engage young people reluctant to share their feelings." Emily Harper, Clinical Psychologist 

"The group had mental health, intellectual and physical disabilities, and many felt that this program would not work for them. However, I believe the group members gained a real sense of belonging. Potentially this was the only sense of belonging to something that they have ever had. They also gained a sense of contribution and recognition that they do matter; they can contribute and achieve something. The opportunity to have their voice and story heard and to take the lead really appeared to be therapeutic for the group. From observation, there were a reduction in the frequency and intensity of the behavioural incidents, an increase in communication demonstrated within the group and an increase in the sense of group cohesion and togetherness. Overall, running this group was a highlight of my career to date." Angie Zappala, Behaviour Practitioner
