ABSTRACT
This chapter explores the use of hip-hop music therapy groups in residential social service settings. Several traumas that led adolescents in residential care settings include abuse, rejection and abandonment. Some barriers to social work include the social stigma of therapy and the expectations that they need to talk about their character flaws and problem behaviors. As observed, young people in residential settings need to initiate and maintain autonomy and control over their lives, as well as a place where their feelings, views and strengths can be expressed.
