“Back to the roots”
This GATE is held to consolidate the Adventure Therapy European Network within the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership “Reaching further: Exploring the healing effects of Adventure Education and Experiential Learning, a methodology to increase the quality of youth work for European youngsters with fewer opportunities”.
Adventure Therapy is a methodology used to work with youth that has been widely practiced and researched in the United States, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. In Europe, although there is growing interest and professionals who use it, there is not a formal network of professionals and organizations using this innovative approach.
The 1st GATE – Gathering for Adventure Therapy in Europe – will provide a platform to gather practitioners, organizations, researchers and people interested in the field of Adventure therapy and Experiential learning working with youth at risk. This event will connect to our European community of elders through our Keynote speakers and enhance national Adventure therapy structures and actions. Round tables and workshops will provide a room to share knowledge and experiences. The 1st GATE will also be a space to dream about the consolidation of The European Network of Adventure Therapy thanks to our fire circles and other activities that will allow professionals to network.
The 1st GATE is a call to join for adventure therapists, adventure therapy programs, psychosomatic clinics, rehabilitation hospitals, child and youth mental health units and hospitals, or any other resources or professionals that offers nature and outdoor based treatment programs.
“Back to the roots” is a celebration and commemoration of the quality of Adventure therapy which also serves to honor and recognize the European history of this methodology. This and following GATEs will be lighthouses that enlighten our future path in the European Adventure Therapy field.
