Everything is Figureoutable: Trails Executive Director Presents at Wilderness Therapy Symposium
Trails Carolina Executive Director Jeremy Whitworth is presenting at the upcoming Wilderness Therapy Symposium in Park City, Utah. His presentation “Everything is Figureoutable” is designed for front line staff to program leaders and shares tools to develop an effective mindset for resilient problem-solving.
Whitworth has been with Trails Carolina, a wilderness therapy program for youth and adolescents ages 10 to 17, for nearly ten years and is the host of the parenting podcast Common Ground: The Podcast. He has dedicated his career to working with children and holds a degree in Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education. “My belief is that wilderness is an avenue to teach our students to be resilient problem solvers. Typically they haven’t had success in finding or creating healthy solutions; teaching and role modeling this concept is most effective when it runs from top to bottom in our organizations,” explained Whitworth.
This workshop will inspire, educate and entertain participants through a lens through which we can choose to view the world. It will touch on how that perspective can impact our mood, stress management, and relationships. Additionally, participants will gain insight on how this idea, as a cultural collective, can impact how a company grows leaders, solves problems, builds systems, role models, and works with its students.
Trails Carolina is a wilderness therapy for pre-teens and adolescents ages 10-17. The clinically sophisticated and time-tested program engages students through wilderness therapy, mindfulness and yoga, equine-assisted therapy, intentional transitions, and academic engagement. Recent outcome research demonstrates efficacy. Trails Carolina was created to help families reconnect and heal.
