In the Footsteps of Nature: Nature Therapy as an Emerging Therapeutic-Educational Model.
Berger, Ronen
Horizons, n22 p27-32 Sum 2003
Basic principles of the nature therapy model are described, integrating the author's personal journey and examples from fieldwork and theory. Four aspects are nature as "sacred space"; nature as therapeutic setting; healing potential of nature's physical and aesthetic elements and connections to "universal truths"; and development of a three-way relationship between client, therapist, and nature. Educational elements include changing environmental attitudes through personal experiences in nature. (SV)
