Hip-Hop Therapy

DRC Therapeutic Services, now offers Hip-Hop Therapy workshops, designed to help practitioners understand Hip-Hop therapy, and how to use this evidence based therapeutic intervention. As practitioner’s struggle with ways to engage the youth in therapy, this 6-hour innovative workshop will introduce practitioners to the theory and approaches of hip hop therapy, which is being widely used by practitioners around the world. Stemming from a cognitive behavioral approach, Hip-Hop Therapy (HHT) is a simple modality that is used to help practitioners build a rapport with younger clients, and people who have an appreciation for hip-hop music. This approach will help practitioners become more aware and it will enhance practitioner’s cultural awareness. This workshop can be conducted in a group setting or practitioners can have individual sessions. At the end of this workshop, practitioners will learn how to effectively use this approach to help address, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This workshop includes a Practitioners guide to Using hip-hop therapy. Please contact us for pricing and availability. Most workshops are conducted on the weekends, so flexibility in scheduling is available.

About the Author

Dr. Cromwell is innovative with traditional methods utilizing many traditional methods of counseling including cognitive behavioral therapy, Person- Center therapy, and behavioral modification. In addition, we use a form of music therapy which has been highly successful with At Risk youth, young adults and clients who have an appreciation for music. Music Therapy is an established clinical intervention in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients' abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives. Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words. Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in many areas such as: overall physical rehabilitation and facilitating movement, increasing people's motivation to become engaged in their treatment, providing emotional support for clients and their families, and providing an outlet for expression of feelings.
