Reflections on a Trip: Two Decades Later
Davis-Berman, Jennifer; Berman, Dene
Journal of Experiential Education, v35 n2 p326-340 Spr 2012
This article reports on a longitudinal qualitative study that involves the interviews of four adults who participated in one of two 10-day wilderness therapy trips 25 years ago. Using qualitative data collection techniques, we conducted in-depth interviews. Respondents were asked to reflect on their lives, the wilderness therapy trip, and the trip's impact on them. Analysis of the interviews identified the following themes for discussion: Sense of Time, Importance of Relationships, Sense of Place, and Lessons for Life. Themes were discussed and implications were suggested.
