Having run several DRUMBEAT programs over recent years and now having completed the “Rhythm to Recovery” training I was asked if there is really any difference? Whilst I value the content within DRUMBEAT, I find that the beauty of R2R is in its flexibility. I am able to tailer the program to the needs of the group. Whether in sessions with individuals all the way through to larger groups, R2R allows me the flexibility to address any number of issues that come up and for any length of time. From single sessions, through to an endless process of finding connection through rhythm and music, R2R allows me to find the balance that is required between conscious cognitive content and calming activities that allow us to emotionally regulate. I am very excited about its application within my work.
