West-Smith, Lisa
Journal of Experiential Education, v20 n2 p68-74 Aug-Sep 1997
Uses the scenario of a women's adventure therapy trip to illustrate theoretical and practical information about "basic" therapeutic communication skills with participants in outdoor adventure settings. Discusses gender-based language style (women's "tentative" language), issues of physical and emotional safety, a philosophical rationale for engaging in therapeutic communication, affirmations, and responsive listening techniques of reflection and clarification. Includes examples. (SV)
