Long, Amy E.
Journal of Experiential Education, v24 n2 p100-08 Fall 2001
A study explored the influence of experiential adventure activities on nine girls with emotional and behavioral disorders at a residential wilderness camp. New members found the activities exciting, but did not relate them to treatment. Established members began to see connections to treatment issues. Advanced members understood the relevance of group activity to individual benefits and became role models. (Contains 26 references.) (TD)
