Abstract

Outdoor adventure experiences, traditionally associated with programs like Out- ward Bound and Project Adventure, have evolved into specific interventions for a number of therapeuticpopulations. Once usedprimari& with dysfunctional adoles- cents, a series ofpresentations and writings have emerged that apply these techni- ques to marriage and family populations. This article presents a brief history and overview of the documented use of adventure experiences in marriage and family therapy and enrichment. Illustrations of actual techniques and recommendations for guiding future studies are also offered.
