Wilderness Therapy Continuing Education

Connecting you and your clients with nature

Wilderness/Nature Based Therapy Experiential Trainings

Our Wilderness Therapy training is geared towards practitioners, coaches and educators. We want to help you change the World!

Learn the benefits for you and your clients of conducting therapy by involving the great outdoors.  Whether it’s adding plants to your office or walking in a local park or back-country wilderness immersion, the gains are exciting and are backed by the latest research.

Wilderness/Adventure therapy and outdoor education is traditionally known in work with troubled youth but now there are more programs that are being provided for adults, couples, professional groups, trauma survivors and war veterans.

Please join us for an introduction to the benefits of wilderness and natural world therapy that can be combined with your current theories and therapies for more healing and growth.  You’ll come away with techniques to use immediately along with some tree talking tips. You’ll learn how getting back to nature is proving to be therapeutic and an incredible bonus to getting clients outdoors is also getting you outdoors and out of that office chair! A happy, healthy counselor is also a benefit to our clients.
