Second Nature, founded in 1998, remains the most clinically advanced Wilderness Therapy program in the country, bringing empirically informed therapeutic techniques and therapists into the stunning landscape of Northern Utah. Second Nature maintains a nomadic wilderness model. This model uniquely intertwines individual therapy sessions, group therapy and the daily milieu of life that cannot be duplicated in traditional therapeutic settings.
Already considered the gold standard in wilderness therapy, Second Nature continues to push for evolution and advancement in the industry. The Family Dynamic Assessment, unique to Second Nature, is one such advancement. This assessment provides a quantitative analysis of family dynamics that helps create a clearer picture of the family system. While at Second Nature, this assessment provides clarity of the strengths and weaknesses within the family system and helps to uncover broader patterns and tendencies for examination and focus beyond the wilderness.
Using the Family Dynamic Assessment, coupled with evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Family Systems Theory, clinicians are able to reach beyond the student and bring understanding and awareness to the entire family.
