The Role of Wilderness Therapy in Rebuilding Self-Image
Even in the depths of profound sorrow, most young people retain some perspective on the things they like about themselves: A particular skill, hobby, or area of interest, for example. Wilderness therapy can build on this to empower them to re-evaluate their life.
Wilderness therapy gives youths repeated experiences of personal strength to counteract feelings of helplessness. They learn that they can set goals, achieve, and work together interdependently with peers who accept them. This helps them come together with a new, healthy group of friends.
It also proves to them that, with the right resources, they can do what they set their minds to. That is the strong foundation of a renewed sense of confidence, empathy, and enjoyment of life.
