Annotated Bibliography for Experience-Based Training & Development and Outdoor Training.
Wagner, Richard J.
This annotated bibliography contains 65 entries on outdoor experiential training, including journal articles, conference papers, newspaper and magazine articles, television broadcasts, books, and unpublished manuscripts. Most items are descriptions or evaluations of programs and models of outdoor-based experiential training for personal development. Such programs are designed for corporate employees and managers, graduate students, and adolescents. Objectives include team building, personal growth, development of wilderness skills, leadership training, development of communication and human relations skills, and improved self-esteem and group trust. Several entries address program risks and employer liability and question the value or effectiveness of these programs. Nine entries concern Outward Bound programs. (SV)
