A Guide to Adventure-Based Counselling
Started in 1974, Adventure Based Counselling is an innovative, community-based, group counselling model that uses co-operative games, initiative problem solving, low and high challenge ropes course elements and other adventure activities.
Islands of Healing presents a comprehensive discussion of this counselling approach and contains extensive “how-to” information on group selection, training, goal setting, sequencing and leading and debriefing activities. Also included are explorations of model ABC programs at a variety of representative sites including junior and senior high schools, psychiatric and court referral programs.
