Drumbeat – for kids
FamilyCare offers a group drumbeat setting for therapeutic interventions when people are experiencing strong emotions and thoughts.
DRUMBEAT is an acronym for Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes, and Thoughts.
Each DRUMBEAT session focuses on different relationship themes such as identity and social responsibility, values, dealing with emotions, peer pressure, harmony, communication and teamwork. If desired, the program may conclude with a performance which gives participants an opportunity to share their progress with family, friends and other respected people in their lives.
This program is targeted for children (8—12years) who have experienced unhealthy relationships. This group will help children to improve their mental wellbeing, increase their self-esteem, reduce stress levels and build their communication and teamwork skills.
Drumbeat reflects, educates and promotes:
- Positive communication
- Healthy relationships
- Respect for people and property (drums)
- Active listening
- Imagination growth
- Goal setting
- Managing our behaviour
- Reading our emotions (anger)
and most of all – Fun!
