Rhythmic Mind – Therapeutic Hip Hop

Growing up within the multitude of environmental challenges facing marginalized communities, many youth experience tremendous amounts of trauma over the course of their upbringing. This trauma can significantly impede their pyscho-social and emotional development, limit their capacity to form and maintain meaningful relationships, and disrupt their ability to self-regulate. These youth are often resistant to and uninspired by conventional methods of talk therapy.

Rhythmic Mind applies a custom designed curriculum using the cutting-edge modality of Hip-Hop Therapy to bridge this gap and provide effective trauma informed services for this often underserved population.

Join Hanna Institute for a deeply immersive evening event where Founders Max Kline and Jonah Scott will demonstrate how teens and young adults engage in their own empowerment and inspiration through Group Process, Lyric Writing and Beat Production. By integrating a variety of therapeutic modalities including narrative, solution focused, somatic, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and transpersonal, Rhythmic Mind engages the mind, body and spirit to facilitate a holistic process of healing and transformation.

Light appetizers will be served.
