We offer an experiential approach to learning about Wilderness Therapy through a backpacking expedition in the mountains of Barcelona and Girona. The participants will also get to know about Adventure Therapy, Outdoor Education, Experiential learning.

This training aims to provide an opportunity to participants to learn and experience how wilderness therapy works from an experiential approach. Through backpacking and living in nature you will explore the key elements of wilderness therapy and how can they apply them in different settings or populations. The group will explore the benefits, theoretical and practical foundations of facilitating therapeutic experiences in nature. Experientia facilitates this training for the 6th time, aiming to share knowledge and experience from different points of view.
