Talking About AT: Getting Clients and Administrators On-Board with AT Services

  • Course level: All Levels


One of our key tasks as an Adventure Therapy practitioner is to explain AT to clients, administrators, and other partners effectively. Initially, it can be difficult to find the language to help others understand what this intervention is all about. We begin by honing in on your definition of AT and then we explore considerations for the optimum ways to engage others in the process. This webinar will focus on supporting you in developing an approach that will help others get on board!
