Therapeutic Drumming was developed in 2003 as a means to engage at risk youth. It is now taught and used by young people and adults in schools, youth services, drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities, child protection residential facilities, mental health services, children’s hospitals, refugee trauma associations and prisons. Now, this cutting edge program is available to prisons, youth detention centers, rehabilitation facilities, and foster care facilities in the Southeast.
