Adventure & Nature Therapy is used as a specific therapy and/or as a complementary therapeutic method to promote, maintain and treat mental health. It is excellent for building and maintaining resilience. It is a holistic and experiential approach that works in and with different natural spaces. With Adventure and Nature Therapy methods, therapeutic settings are supported, supplemented, and/or designed independently. Therapeutic expertise, therapeutic context, and the depth of the process are decisive features that distinguish Adventure therapy settings from pedagogically oriented interventions.
