All Kinds of News for August 08, 2018
Outback Therapeutic Expeditions, a leading wilderness therapy program in clinical oversight and shifting of industry norms, launches PEAK in August of 2018. PEAK is a unique way of bringing adventure therapy into the existing non-restrictive expedition model at Outback. This week-long, high adventure based programming emphasizes focus on student preparedness for upcoming transition from wilderness. PEAK will bring students entering into the latter part of their stay into a new student group, placed into a new environment, and presented with new challenges through adventure therapy.
Tracy Hopkins, Business Development Director had this to say, “We are passionate about giving as much information, insight, and instruction as we can to every family who gives us the privilege of supporting them and their loved ones. By incorporating PEAK, we get to add a critical layer of examining student readiness for transition from wilderness while allowing time for necessary adjustments prior to departure. We are thrilled to be offering adventure therapy in such an intentional way without detracting from who we are as a program”.
Outback Therapeutic Expeditions has been operating since 2001 and continues to push the envelope in what the standard of care looks like in wilderness therapy, while maintaining the heart and sacredness of an expedition model.
