Hip Hop therapy the topic at Hanna Boys Center
Rhythmic Mind cofounders Jonah Scott and Max Kline will be at Hanna Boys Center on Thursday, Feb. 20, as part of the Hanna Institute Speaker Series.
Attendees will hear Max and Jonah’s story and learn how they engage teens and young adults in their own empowerment and healing through hip hop – and how they are reaching a demographic of kids that traditional therapy can’t always reach, through lyric writing and beat production.
Their work is particularly meaningful for marginalized youth who are at greater risk of experiencing trauma over the course of their young lives. Trauma changes their brain development and leads to behavioral issues. It hinders kids’ ability to maintain meaningful relationships and their ability to self-regulate.
This Feb. 20 event is from 6-8 p.m. at Hanna, 17000 Arnold Dr. in Sonoma.
Tickets are $10 for students, $20 general admission, and can be bought at www.hannainstitute.org.
