The Adventure Therapy Institute is founded in 2021 to provide uptodate, effective, and quality training in Adventure and Nature Therapy in Europe. It has been a long path to get here, and now we can finally introduce the training we would have loved to do time back. Distilled from more than 10 years of training in Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Iceland, Greece and Italy, and 3 years designing hand in hand with the newest needs and recommendations of professionals and companies, and lately, following the self-understanding of the German Federal Association of Individual and Experiential Education.

Both blended learning, experiential, to embody the learning and live a meaningful group experience; and online adapted to the new times, and having in mind the planet: less carbon footprint.

Please consider that there may be entry requierements for the training. Depending on your level and background of previous studies and training, you can certify as a therapist or a practitioner. A Therapist designs, implements and evaluates therapeutic interventions, while a Practitioner supports and assits the therapeutic processes.
