Asociación Experientia offers the 2º edition of their International Training: An Experiential Approach to Wilderness Therapy. Come to learn, feel and live the wilderness in Spain. Learn about key elements of Wilderness Therapy in an experiential way.
Wilderness Therapy is a methodology within the Experiential Therapies and therefore we promote experiential learning.
Wilderness Therapy is an ideal approach to work with youth like troubled teens with psychosocial or educational problems that struggle at school,
We believe that by living this experience on first hand, as professionals, we will be able to provide a better experience to our youth participants in the future.
Through a backpacking expedition in the fields of Valencia, Spain, sharing and creating new experiences in a small group, while learning and experiencing the therapeutic effects of the wilderness.
Come to develop yourself as a person and as a professional to better understand how can we use the healing power of nature for our work and interventions with youth.
