Group Drumming and the Crucial Cs: Immediate Effects of an Adlerian-Based Group Drumming Intervention on Mood and Social Interest Among College Students
This article examines how social interest and the Crucial Cs model have assessment and treatment implications in group drumming settings. The article also presents a study that examined the immediate effects of a single 45-minute Adlerian-based group-drumming session on the affective states and social interest among university students. The study included participants (N = 100) from undergraduate and graduate programs from a university in the southeastern United States. General results support the use of an Adlerian group-drumming protocol to improve mood among university students. Results also suggest further inquiry into this protocol as a tool to increase social interest.
