We are excited to launch a new training designed specifically for therapists working in the wilderness treatment field. As those experienced in wilderness therapy well know, providing field staff with the skills they need to be more effective is only part of the solution.
Teaching therapists how to best utilize elements of the wilderness to meet individual treatment goals, along with having a more in-depth understanding of the process are crucial components as well. Read on to learn more about how we can help the therapists on your team to be more impactful- with students, staff, and parents, as well as referral sources.
Wilderness As Co-Therapist: Therapeutic Collaboration with the Natural World
Are the full benefits of wilderness being maximized as a therapeutic tool in your program?
Wilderness therapy provides a unique opportunity to draw on the inherent healing elements of the natural world to support individual treatment goals. When therapists are trained to effectively access the range of creative elements available, the wilderness becomes much more than an outdoor office; skilled collaboration with the wilderness creates unparalleled opportunities for therapeutic growth.
