Expressive Therapies Summit East Coast
“Hip Hop culture is more than just listening to rap music; it promotes social consciousness, and serves as an audible protest to structural racism and anti-Blackness. It is deeply connected to the struggle for self- determination, political activism, raising public consciousness, and collective healing within the Black community. Hip Hop therapy is a “nontraditional approach” that integrates widely accepted modalities including music, narrative, and mindfulness interventions. This approach centers cultural relevance and connects both youth and adults to mental health treatment; it bridges the gap in a way that many other interventions are unable to do. Hip hop therapy encourages participants to tell their story from a strength-based perspective that allows them to reframe the social narrative that has been forced on them. This 3-hour workshop will not train participants to be a hip hop therapist, but it will give them an understanding of how to examine and explore its therapeutic relevance. Participants will learn how to invite a client’s connection to Hip Hop into the therapeutic space in a way that is both healing and empowering. All are invited.”
