The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant in order to fund the implementation of a complementary drumming intervention for adolescents in a short-term residential setting. The program aims to increase engagement in therapy and build healthier relationships in the lives of participants. Adolescents who are exposed to adversities may engage in high risk behaviors. Adolescents who are ambivalent about expressing themselves in the context of traditional interventions may find it difficult to change their risky behaviors. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the empirical support for the use of both traditional brief interventions and complementary drumming interventions with adolescents. A search was also conducted to locate a potential funder for the adapted DRUMBEAT program for 1 year. If funded, this program promises to help adolescents recognize their strengths, gain confidence, and increase their sense of achievement. Actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
