Exploration of Adventure Therapy:The Use of Adventure in Clinical Settings
Time & Location
About the Event
This training is created for mental health professionals who sometimes feel trapped by the four walls and who also love outdoors and adventure. This workshop, lead by Nicky Treadway, LMHC, is perfect for individuals who love using movements and metaphor in their practice. Whether you've been doing adventure/outdoor based work for years or if this is something brand new to you, you'll fit right in.
This course will review history, practical application, risk management, how to integrate into current practice and demonstration of hard skills.
Adventure Therapy, although an old form of therapy, has been growing in popularity in the last decade. Currently, Adventure Therapy is being practiced all around the world. From large organizations to small practices, therapy supplemented with adventure is proving to be more and more effective.
This course proves to be a wonderful starting place for any clinician looking to initiate practice as an Adventure Therapist. The instructors will start with a overview of the history in order to gain an understanding of the work that has and is currently being done around the world. The course will then progress into an exploration of theory with emphasis on processing theories. This instruction will help provide a frame of operation and understanding.
Adventure Therapy also brings up a fair amount of concern for risk. "How can I keep client's confidentiality?" or "What if someone gets hurt?". The instructors will discuss risk management basics including front-loading, consent, and risk response.
Lastly, the course will provide group material, complete with hard skill facilitation practice and demonstration.
Attendees are invited to dress comfortable and get ready to learn through experience.
Early Bird rates expire 30 days prior to the training.
