Developing a Rationale for Adventure-Based Interventions with Young People at Risk.
Nichols, Geoff
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v13 n1 p8-10 Spr 1996
Reviews research related to the impact of outdoor adventure programs designed to reduce the criminal behavior of young persons. Suggests that a lack of specific cognitive skills predispose individuals to engage in criminal behavior and that a rational for adventure-based interventions should address such deficits as lack of interpersonal cognition, impulsiveness, and low locus of control.
