Woodville Alliance facilitates a range of dynamic evidence based group programs that can be tailored to the specific needs of children, young people and their families. Group programs are a platform to open dialogue between children, young people and their families about certain issues as well as to provide them with skills and abilities to further their resilience in managing life’s challenges.
Group programs show children and young people that it is okay to ask for help and give them a clear plan should they require further assistance. The programs are aimed at addressing a range of needs across a range of age groups. Programs offered are not just limited to children and young people but can also be directed towards parents to assist them to improve and enhance their resilience relationships with their children.
Here is a list of programs we currently facilitate:
PALS Playing and Learning to Socialise
Seasons for Growth
Discovering Relationships using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes & Thoughts (DRUMBEAT)
We are able to facilitate these groups in schools, community spaces or to partner with you.

Mental health crisis situations covered are:
Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
Non-suicidal self-injury (sometimes called deliberate self-harm)

Severe psychotic states
At the core of the DRUMBEAT program is a focus on social connection. The universal nature and importance of relationship issues allows the program to maintain relevance across cultures, genders and age groups. Behind the challenges faced by most people struggling to find meaning and focus in their lives are relationship issues; in fact, it is widely agreed that healthy relationships are the building blocks of happy and productive lives.
DRUMBEAT is a flexible program that 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, developed by Holyoake to reach alienated young people of those at risk of problematic health and social outcomes.
DRUMBEAT explores relationship issues such as:
Dealing with emotions
DRUMBEAT promotes social understanding and connection through a team drumming experience. It is fun, safe, creative, engaging and rewarding. Participants lift their self-esteem, learn to work cooperatively and are exposed to the therapeutic and recreational benefits of music.
