To meet your client where they are is one of the most important tenets in clinical work, especially when working with youth. Healing Young People thru Empowerment (H.Y.P.E.) is an evidence-based life skills and empowerment curriculum developed by Dr. Adia Winfrey that integrates psychology, Hip Hop culture, and dialogue for young people who are having difficulty in school, lacking motivation, or searching for a voice. More specifically, this curriculum addresses many diagnoses such as: Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), PTSD, and bereavement. Music is a powerful connector and this curriculum helps youth create goals, identify steps needed to fulfill them, and connect with resources for continued support. Participants of this training will learn how to deliver the curriculum that will produce and promote emotional wellness. During this intensive one-day training, participants will receive detailed instruction for implementing the H.Y.P.E. Hip Hop Therapy curriculum and will examine issues and social concerns affecting at risk and undeserved youth.
