A DOZEN Find and Connect clients per­formed at the Kim­berly Care Fa­cil­ity in West Leed­erville as part of their DRUM­BEAT pro­gram last month. Find and Connect is a sup­port ser­vice to help im­prove the lives of Forgotten Aus­tralians and for­mer child mi­grants. DRUM­BEAT com­bines ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing with cog­ni­tive be­havioural ther­apy and en­gages young peo­ple and adults who may be anx­ious or re­sis­tant to talk-based ther­a­pies. It is a ther­a­peu­tic pro­gram us­ing rhythm and was de­vel­oped by Holyoake to reach young peo­ple at risk of prob­lem­atic health and so­cial out­comes.
