Wilderness therapy, as the name suggests, is a type of experiential, adventure-based therapy that encourages clients to address issues through wilderness expeditions. Wilderness therapy can take many forms but generally seeks to build participants self-sufficiency and self-esteem through challenging outdoor activities. Wilderness therapy often occurs in a group setting, which can help to address social and behavior issues. Examples include challenge courses and survival skills camps (like Outward Bound).
