"Trauma Focused Adventure Therapy" is a two-day training designed for Therapists, Youth Workers, Behaviour Support Teachers, Youth Support Coordinators, Chaplains, and others who support difficult to engage young people. Outdoor Educators will find the training useful in catering for "difficult" students and will help improve outcomes.
Adventure as therapy is highly engaging, targeted and an effective therapeutic process. Adventures can be short, local and may not require adventure qualifications. Getting young people away from the normal environment can help them re-structure their world views of themselves, peers, systems and their potential. They can then return to the normal environment and be assisted to maintain these changes.
