Reese, Ryan F.; Hadeed, Sabrina; Craig, Hannah; Beyer, Alia; Gosling, Marjorie – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
Wilderness Therapy (WT) programming has been criticized for underutilizing nature as an active co-facilitator in treatment.

Ebert, Philip A. – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
In this article, I explore a Bayesian approach to avalanche decision-making. I motivate this perspective by highlighting a version of the base-rate fallacy and show that a similar pattern applies to decision-making in avalanche-terrain. I then draw out three theoretical lessons from adopting a Bayesian approach and discuss these lessons…

Mutz, Michael; Müller, Johannes; Göring, Arne – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
Research provided ample evidence that excessive screen time (ST) in adolescence has detrimental effects on psychosocial health. This paper argues that structured outdoor programs can serve as an antidote to negative health impacts of exaggerated ST. For youth with a high level of regular ST, outdoor adventures imply a break with their 'normal'…
