A NEW DIMENSION TO CAMPING ADVENTURE THERAPY

Adventure Psychology is the study of how adventurous experiences shape personality traits and abilities that maximise adaptation to new or changing environments, coping with adversity (resilience), and promote psychological and social development. Key traits and abilities thought to be important include: risk-judgment and a capacity for risk-taking, emotional self-management, problem identification and analysis, physical and social problem solving, psychological hardiness, goal focus, resilient motivational sets, optimism, capacity to learn from failure and feedback from the environment, among others.

Adventuretherapy is a form of individual or group counselling that seeks to assist people in exploring thoughts, feelings, ideas and activities within an environment that is controlled and therefore perceived as safe. Therapy of this type has proven helpful in overcoming self-esteem issues, various types of social phobia, and in assisting patients to adjust to new life circumstances. The ultimate goal of adventuretherapy is to help the patient expand his or her worldview and embrace all the possibilities that are currently open and available.
In order to accomplish this goal, adventuretherapy can take on many different forms. For people who find themselves limited by phobias, the therapy can often take the form of games designed to explore the underlying causes of the phobia and begin to defuse them. At the same time, the therapeutic approach may also involve helping the patient to break free of older perceptions and begin to experience settings that are currently viewed as threatening as manageable and possibly even agreeable. Over time, the games or activities help to modify the way the phobic individual functions internally and externally, thus minimizing or even eliminating the phobia altogether.
