Basic Trauma Focused Adventure Therapy Training is designed for Youth Workers and Outdoor Leaders wishing to combine both fields into a highly engaging, targeted and effective therapeutic process.

Our model was recently showcased at the Australian National Outdoor Education conference at Sunshine Coast University, where it gained outstanding reviews. The model provides a simple, achievable and targeted method through which an array of outdoor programs can be designed.

Overview

  • Day 1 – Theory of Complex Trauma and adolescence
  • Day 2 – Using outdoor activity to heal

Topics:

  • disrupted development, brain growth and function, attachment, trauma based behaviours
  • 4×4=4 model of trauma focused adventure therapy (see below)
  • workshops: abseil, bushwalk, games

Components of 4×4=4 model:

  •  assessment
  •  the four environments of adventure
  •  3 phase program design
  •  ArSSSe adventure therapy outcomes

What previous participants have said:

Focus on application of model was easy to understand and clear. Engaging content was illustrated with stories, practical activities and humorous delivery. Thought around planning of activities emphasised.”

It was fantastic! Lots of learning and so much made sense. It taught me how I can be an even better youth worker. Really friendly crew, great environment. Absolute awesome reset with some vital information to take with me in my work. THANK YOU!!”

“The training was extremely useful and has given me skills in Complex Trauma analysis that I had previously only guessed at. I find the model also extremely applicable to all of my work, and the processes and theory behind them are very well thought out. They carry the lived experiences of Grahams’ practical knowledge; can’t put a price on that!”
