Building an Adventure Therapy program is a unique challenge! As a therapist, you probably understand how to provide effective treatment, but building and growing an adventure therapy practice requires a remarkable combination of skills: providing therapy, running adventure activities, and managing risk… all while maintaining a focus on providing meaningful experiences to your clients! For many aspiring adventure therapists, this challenge is exacerbated by the fact that a lot of this information can be hard to find. That is why we created the Adventure Therapy Program Development Series!
This series provides you with access to SIX courses designed to help you take your Adventure Therapy dream from idea to reality. Additionally, the 12-Week Consultation Cohort Model adds SIX 90-minute live group consultations to further enhance your learning and implementation! And, if you can’t attend one of the in-person consultation meetings, they will be recorded so you can still get the knowledge and training hours from the experience!
For this cohort, Consultation sessions are scheduled on Tuesdays from 6:00-7:30 pm eastern time. Asynchronous training weeks alternate with consultation sessions, as outlined in the content below!

- Understand the administrative responsibilities associated with providing adventure therapy interventions.
- Be able to articulate our professional duty of care and how to address this in practice.
