Adventure therapy has significant benefits on an individual’s mental, physical, and emotional health. The activities encourage involvement and participation, along with teamwork. Additionally, it can build a stronger bond between the patient and therapist since they will be sharing experiences side by side.
While standard therapy involves lots of talking, adventure therapy involves lots of doing. The experience is real, meaningful, and reflection is encouraged. It’s extremely important that the lessons learned are able to be applied to past and future experiences. The skills and strategies that are used in adventure therapy are meant to carry with individuals throughout their lives outside of treatment.
