Outdoor Interventions can Turn a Kid's life around

Outdoor, adventure and wilderness therapy programs are proven methods to work with individuals, families and children with behavioral and emotional disorders. Outdoor Behavioral Health options compete with traditional residential treatment programs and demonstrate stable positive outcomes in less time at lower cost. Professionals who understand and utilize outdoor therapy resources effectively can help “at-risk” youth, change family dynamics and profoundly impact the life skills of individual clients.

This program and a series of clinics will provide content and experiential opportunities that train participants to screen for appropriate programs, develop treatment plans, monitor treatment and integrate outdoor therapy program referral services into their practices. Clinicians who work with youth and families can increase the size and effectiveness of their practices by understanding and working with appropriate outdoor programs.
