Beat the Odds®
Social & Emotional Skill Building Delivered in a Framework of Drumming. Beat the Odds is an evidence-based and trauma informed program that integrates activities from group drumming and group counseling to build core social-emotional strengths such as focusing and listening, team building, positive risk taking, self-esteem, awareness of others, leadership, expressing feelings, managing anger/stress, empathy and gratitude.
Hands & Hearts Mission:
It is our mission to create educational equity opportunities to inner-city and underserved students by providing opportunities such as Beat the Odds® with Hands & Hearts Drumming to them at their schools.
UCLA researchers have shown
that Beat the Odds® can significantly reduce a spectrum of behavior problems in children, such as those associated with inattention, withdrawn/depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, oppositional defiance, and sluggish cognitive tempo. In addition, the curriculum is inclusive, culturally relevant, and does not bear the stigma of therapy.
