Event description

Description

Participants will analyze and evaluate how the Therapeutic Beat Making (TBM) model, the HipHop and Empowerment (MUZUZE) model, and a model for how HipHop can be used as a culturally responsive intervention and tool in educational, mental health and community settings can facilitate healing and positive youth development in their unique settings. Participants will determine how to potentially integrate healing strategies within their professional roles based on evidence of how HipHop and TBM may be used to address complex and developmental trauma.
