All Kinds of News for November 07, 2018
Last month Elements Traverse celebrated its second anniversary of serving young adults in the wilderness. Traverse is a small, owner-operated program founded upon the vision that everyone can live a full and healthy life, provided they have the right skills and support. At Traverse, we incorporate DBT skills into every facet of our program, promoting distress tolerance, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness. Furthermore, Traverse helps their clients begin to identify their true feelings, desires, and boundaries, and how to communicate those in a way that others will hear and respect.
The Traverse model incorporates unique adventure programming opportunities right within an expeditionary experience, offering stand up paddle boarding, fly fishing, rafting the Colorado river, mountain biking, SUP yoga, climbing, rappelling, and self-assisted backpacking. Traverse enjoys a beautiful course area ranging from the low-altitude red rock desert of the San Rafael Swell to the high alpine mountain wilderness of the Wasatch Plateau.
Elements Traverse wishes to offer sincere thanks to all those who have placed support and trust in them over the past two years, and looks forward to serving many more clients and their families in the years to come.
