PULSE has just finished a report that gives some answers to these questions and a thorough status quo of the Field Band Foundation (FBF) members´ psycho-social health and well-being. The report also provides information from several psycho-social theories that are relevant and useful for the PULSE and the FBF´s work and visions. The main theories used are the principles of post-traumatic growth (PTG) and resilience. The report also includes analyses of replies to the survey “Who am I and who am I going to be – a survey about music, health and ambitions” . The survey was conducted by PULSE in 2014/15 and focuses on how music and leisure activities have an impact on South African youth`s health and personal ambitions.
Use this great opportunity to learn more about South African challenges and strengths, psycho-social health, music theory and about the important work the Field Band Foundation is doing!
