Therapeutic Adventure


Transformational Changes in Adventure Therapy: Now is the Time!
Presented by: Mike Gass, PhD

The practice and profession of adventure therapy has undergone radical changes in the past five years. This workshop will present changes in risk management, accreditation, research, public policy, and return on investment that have contributed to how we offer adventure therapy as a professional practice as well as how we are received and integrated by more established behavioral healthcare systems. This will include radical perception changes around risk management, the increase of higher quality research, the evolution of advancing program review processes, and the use of routine outcome monitoring to enhance client treatment. This webinar will increase your ability as an adventure therapist to answer the questions “Is it safe?”, “Does it work?”, “How can I tell a good program from a bad program?” And “is it worth the money?"
