LIBERA Institute kindly provided us with a brief overview of the sessions that were conducted over the last six months with the support of Sopharma.
The purpose of the sessions is to help children who are deprived of parental care improve communication skills and their ability to deal with aggression. To accomplish this, drums and rhythm therapy are utilized in the sessions. This has proven to be especially successful in the risk groups of adolescents. Daily incidents of violence in homes and schools show how important it is to teach young people to deal with anger and other negative emotions. Drums are ideal for this purpose. Through the power of rhythm, negative energy and aggression in adolescence is transformed into self-expression and connection with yourself and others.
Conducting two monthly group sessions for a period of seven months results in: • Reduced aggression • Improved communication skills • Overcoming of anxiety and depression This type of therapy boosts children's self-esteem and allows them to learn how to communicate more freely and successfully, while overcoming isolation and social exclusion.
