A Training Program for Working with Children.

Beat the Odds integrates activities from contemporary drum circles and group counseling to teach skills such as focusing and listening, team building, leadership, expressing feelings, managing anger/stress, empathy and gratitude.  It is inclusive, culturally relevant, and does not bear the stigma of therapy.

UCLA researchers have shown that Beat the Odds can significantly improve a spectrum of behavior problems in children, such as inattention, withdrawn/depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, oppositional defiance, and sluggish cognitive tempo.  Click here to view the study published in eCAM in July 2010  While this program has been designed for use with elementary age children, it can be easily adapted to any population such as older children, families, and older adults.
