Counseling Youth by Promoting Healthy Emotional Reflection Program - CYPHER

The  Counseling Youth by Promoting Healthy Emotional Reflection Program (CYPHER) program is open to young learners, grades seven through 12, interested in writing, recording, and performing hip-hop music. .  Young learners. This 10-week program meets one day a week (Wednesdays) for 1 hour and 30 minutes (from 5:00 - 6:30 pm EST). Participants are split into small groups of six to ten students, and groups are co-facilitated by graduate students in the School of Education counseling program at Manhattan College. A final showcase will be held for students' friends and family, where they exhibit and perform the music they created during the program.

This program is connected to Hip-Hop and School Counseling Praxis, a graduate course taught by Dr. Ian P. Levy, who teaches pre-service school counselors on using hip-hop in small-group practices.

Engaging in hip-hop work with Dr. Levy was one of the highlights of my school counseling program. As a new school counselor, I often find myself looking for new, creative, and innovative methods that encourage students to emotionally express themselves and grow. Hip-hop-based training/counseling felt genuine, authentic, and real. I also grew and improved immensely as a counselor, particularly in my ability to talk openly and honestly about race with students and using social justice issues and current events as a tool in small groups.
