Rhythmic Mind is a Hip-Hop Therapy and Positive Youth Development (PYD) organization, serving at-risk/at-promise adolescents, teens and Transitional Age Youth (TAY) in the greater Bay Area.
Growing up within the multitude of environmental challenges facing marginalized communities, many youth experience tremendous amounts of trauma over the course of their upbringing. This trauma can significantly impede their pyscho-social and emotional development, limit their capacity to form and maintain meaningful relationships, and disrupt their ability to self-regulate. These youth are often resistant to and uninspired by conventional methods of talk therapy. Rhythmic Mind applies a custom designed curriculum using the cutting-edge modality of Hip-Hop Therapy to bridge this gap and provide effective trauma informed services for this often underserved population.
