About Course

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.   If you have an idea or a plan for the type of Adventure Therapy program you want to build, this course walks you through six different phases to go from vision to implementation.

I found this information to be so helpful and it really gave me guidance in how to proceed as I work to set up my organization's adventure therapy program. The sample documents and the research cited was very beneficial for my own planning. I found the videos to be engaging and the information was presented very clearly.
