Going on a Journey: A Case Study of Nature Therapy with Children with a Learning Difficulty
Berger, Ronen
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n4 p315-326 Dec 2008
Therapy is usually described as an indoor activity, centering on verbal dialogue between therapist and client(s). Based on a qualitative study conducted with a group of children with learning difficulties, this article presents a way in which therapy can take place creatively in nature, which serves not only as a therapeutic setting but also as a non-verbal medium and partner in the process. Using participants' voices to highlight the programme's protocol and impacts, the article presents elements from the innovative framework of nature therapy, offering practitioners concepts and methods that can be incorporated into their practice.
