2. Adventure Therapy Risk Management Practices

Using adventure activities in therapy comes with professional responsibilities to address risk through both clinical and adventure practices, whether you are walking in a city park or engaging in higher risk adventures like paddling or climbing. In this training, we will review fundamental concepts of risk management, breaking them down into manageable steps. We will explore ways that we assess and manage risk in adventure therapy settings, providing useful tools for adventure therapy therapists to incorporate into their practice!
