Outback Therapeutic Expeditions Can Help!

As Seen on Dr. Phil and Inside Edition

Outback's Wilderness Programs blend the best of the "ancient cultural systems" with the most effective and proven therapeutic processes. Your troubled teen will experience the highest standards of safety and therapy in the context of one of the most powerful settings for real change - the wilderness.

The Outback philosophy is a strengths-based model which focuses on building strong relationships of trust, supporting the child through the process of change instead of "breaking them down" to build them up again. This approach allows the clinical team to work out specific structures, assignments, activities to understand, assess and help the student make significant progress during a student's stay.

WHY CHOOSE OUTBACK EXPEDITIONS?

The wilderness setting acts as a catalyst that moves students out of their comfort zone. As students adjust to their new surroundings, Outback counselors observe their negative habits and positively involve students in safe, constructive activities, and in therapeutic sessions where students begin to think more insightfully and replace negative thoughts and habits with positive ones.

In an independent research study by Keith C. Russell, Ph. D., of the University of Idaho's Wilderness Research Center, various outdoor education programs for adolescents -- including three Aspen programs -- participated. The study concluded that participation in such outdoor programs resulted in clinically significant reductions in severity of behavioral and emotional symptoms. More than 83% of participants made such improvement. Almost half (46%) of participants returned to a normal range as a result of treatment. After an 18-month study, researchers concluded that the participants not only maintained their outcomes, but continued to improve after treatment.

IF YOUR TEEN STRUGGLES ACADEMICALLY, HAS LOW SELF-ESTEEM, DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY, OUTBACK CAN HELP

Many of our students are very bright and capable - but underlying issues sabotage their school performance and relationships with family members.
