Engaging with Life: Therapeutic Benefits of the Physical Aspects of Adventure Therapy.
Maizell, Rich
Zip Lines: The Voice for Adventure Education, n41 p24-27 Sum 2000
Adventure therapy infuses experiential, physical activity into traditional talk therapy, drawing support from Piaget's theory that children construct knowledge from their actions on the environment. Several vignettes illustrate the point, noting the importance of laughter and physical touch to therapy. Using ropes for a "touch without touching" is helpful in the case of abused adolescents. (TD)
