Kilty, Katie
Zip Lines: The Voice for Adventure Education, n41 p28-34 Sum 2000

Adventure programs can create an environment of unconditional acceptance and trust where people can speak their inner fears. Two women who had negative body images relate how adventure workshops helped them accept their bodies. (TD)
