    HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming Facilitation Training (Basic Training) teaches a fun, evidence-based whole person strategy which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy non-strenuous workout. On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression. This system can be integrated as a therapeutic strategy in group counseling sessions, support groups, rehabilitation centers, schools, hospitals, aging facilities and more.

    Completing this training prepares you to facilitate programs using the HealthRHYTHMS protocol and also provides the foundational knowledge necessary to participate in the HealthRHYTHMS Adolescent Protocol Training in the future.

    Trainers: Margaret Sowry & Larry Dickson, MA, LPC

    CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS

    We are currently looking for individuals that would like to share their expertise and experiences as DCFs to serve as session leaders and presenters.  This year, we will be emphasizing how we as facilitators take action with our DCF principles, methods, and business considerations, to truly be leaders that help us move drum circle facilitation into the future, rooted in the theme of “Rhythm, Rhyme and Reason”.  

    Given our theme, we are looking for sessions that truly take the community beyond “Show us what you do”, that push the envelope of our learning, and that help us grow, develop, and build the future of drum circle facilitation.  

    The application period is open for workshop session proposals covering the following general subject areas:

    A. DCF Business Development (building market presence, client base, equipment & logistics, start-up funding, etc.)

    B. Program Design & Activities for Specific Populations (children, special needs, workplace training, health & wellness, etc.)

    C. DCF Techniques and Strategies (activities, games, resources)

    D. DCF Mastery (personal presence, intention, self-development, inter-disciplinary resources, peer feedback, etc.)
