Beat the Odds® Drumming for Resilience
Beat the Odds® is an evidence-based and trauma-informed program that integrates the power of group drumming and group counseling to build core strengths such as listening, team building, leadership, expressing feelings, managing anger/stress, empathy, and gratitude. UCLA researchers have shown it can significantly reduce behavior problems, such as those related to inattention, depression, posttraumatic stress, and anxiety. This program will give Los Angeles County students a chance to lead and shine, while rejuvenating and motivating staff.
