3 day workshops
The Family Action Centre and Holyoake, WA delivers regular DRUMBEAT Facilitator Training workshops across Australia.
The training is a 3 day professional development workshop and covers facilitation skills and dealing with difficult behaviours as well as the content of the DRUMBEAT intervention itself.
Participants in these workshops include professionals drawn from a wide range of fields working with 'at risk' youth and adult population groups. No musical background is required.
Participants receive training resources that include a work book, the facilitator manual and a CD with all the rhythms used in the program. An instructional DVD is available for purchase separately.
