Henderson, Karla A., Ed.
Proceedings of a symposium sponsored by the Coalition for Education in the Outdoors (CEO) are presented in this report. The CEO is a network of institutions, organizations, agencies, businesses, and associations in support of outdoor education. This symposium, reflecting the work of CEO's Research Task Force, provides literature reviews and field research reports related to outdoor education and makes recommendations for future research. The document consists of three sections. The first section contains invited presentations and corresponding summary discussions on individual and personal growth, restorative experiences, group development and dynamics, and therapeutic uses of outdoor education. The second section contains refereed research papers based on specific programs for particular groups. The final section provides abstracts and selected research references on such topics as the ethics of outdoor leadership, neuroendocrine reactivity during the stress of an Outward Bound course; the phenomenology of wilderness experience and human development, the impact of corporate adventure programs, the facilitator role, and evaluation of outdoor educational programming.
