Process support in nature

The new OUTWARD BOUND training nature and experience therapy already started with the first course in October 2021 in Schwangau/Allgäu. This training, which comprises 6 courses and 27 days, combines aspects of experiential education with therapeutic elements and methods and thus enables holistic experience-oriented accompaniment of individuals and groups in and with nature.

Developmental issues are addressed and basic therapeutic, solution and resource-oriented methods are taught. The foundations for this are humanistic psychology, systemic and body-oriented approaches and, in the original sense, Kurt Hahn’s experiential therapy, which is more current than ever. The own experience as well as the reflection and independent guiding and initiating of healing processes outdoors will take place in alternation. Helping people to help themselves, prevention and resilience occupy a large space during the Erebnistherapie training.
