Description: Wilderness therapy is a powerful therapeutic intervention for the delivery of mental health treatment in both individual and group counseling modalities. Wilderness therapy correlates well with other counseling frameworks such as group therapy, creative therapy, spiritual counseling, addictions counseling, and health/wellness. This presentation aims to educate participants on the basics of wilderness therapy, discuss applications and effectiveness, and share cultural groups who may benefit from this approach.
