Adventure Therapy is a modality of therapy that engages clients in the therapeutic process through the intentional use of adventure activities and initiatives. Adventure Therapy is an essential tool for strengthening rapport, building engagement in the therapeutic process and helping clients develop deeper self-awareness and insight. Adventure Therapists are rewarded with a tremendous sense of fulfillment, excitement and enjoyment.
This online course will cover the information necessary to get you started in this field! We will review the core theories of experiential education and Adventure Therapy models. We will review clinical topics such as assessment in Adventure Therapy, adapting activities to match client goals, facilitation strategies and approaches, how to process Adventure Therapy activities, sequencing activities, and encouraging transfer of learning. Finally we will discuss what steps new Adventure Therapists should take to begin integrating Adventure Therapy into their work with clients.
This online course will be delivered through a combination of pre-recorded lessons (asynchronous lessons) as well as 5 one-hour group webinars (synchronous lessons) during which students will engage in experiential activities, group discussion, and lecture. All class meetings will be recorded and shared for participants to review independently. Participants complete the course by watching the assigned videos, and participating in the five class meetings.
