Belfast, 19-20th October 2018
Releasing Rhythms is delighted to announce a two day course, Rhythm2Recovery. This course provides attendees with the practical tools and skills to introduce music into their practice in order to address the social and emotional challenges faced by their clients or students. No previous music skills are required.
The R2R model is used by counsellors and educators around the world working in diverse fields including trauma, mental health, behavioural education, custodial facilities, child protection and refugee integration. The exercises are fun, engaging and practical and require no prior musical experience. This work is strongly evidence based and client focused with an emphasis on empowerment. It includes over 120 new exercises and rhythm games for both counselling and education settings and can be adapted for individual, family and larger group work.

The workshop has been tailored to address the needs of people resistant to ‘talk based’ therapies with an emphasis on experiential learning, teamwork, social skills and emotional regulation.
