In general, wilderness outdoor therapy camps do provide therapeutic benefits to emotionally challenged emerging adults from Alaska just by being in a natural environment. However, typical programs do not always address the specific issues that the participating young adult men or women are struggling to overcome. Expanse is different and is far from being the typical wilderness treatment program.
Clinicians and field therapists at Expanse support our troubled young adult clients with a proven no-resistance approach. Expanse is unique in the manner in which it takes humanistic approaches to wilderness therapy. They challenge each adult wilderness student with such subtlety that they do not know they are being challenged. Having a non-traditional curriculum further gets through a typical young adult's resistance to authority, allowing mental health counselors and field therapists to gain clinical information while promoting internal growth and remediation.
Family consultants from Expanse Wilderness are available to support and coach families into finding the right accredited outdoor therapy program for their particular situation.

accredited outdoor therapy programs for adults from Alaska
Any of the top accredited outdoor therapy programs for adults from Alaska should provide emotionally challenged young adult clients with an individualized treatment plan, as well as group therapy sessions each day. One of the most notable aspects of wilderness outdoor therapy camps is the fact that many distractions that are recurrent in traditional therapeutic programs (e.g., mobile devices, internet) are not permitted. This means that the adult wilderness students within the program will have far fewer distractions and, thus, will remain focused on their remediation goals and therapeutic treatments.
Additionally, outdoor activities within nature are proven to have scores of psychological and physical health benefits. Struggling emerging adults have a much greater capacity to build interpersonal relationships while being in the wilderness. This allows the young adult men or women to gain personal insight into their behavior and, therefore, being able to make changes more quickly. This is achieved by overcoming the natural obstacles that the wilderness offers which, in turn, builds self-efficacy and improves self-esteem.
The field therapists and mental health counselors at Expanse Wilderness reach out to troubled young adults using a proven no-resistance approach. Expanse is unique in the way it takes a humanistic approach to wilderness therapy. They challenge each young adult client in subtle ways that result in them not being aware that they are being challenged.
Since emerging adults often build up resistance toward authority and authority figures, the non-traditional curriculum implemented by Expanse enables them to get around the resistance of the adult wilderness students in the program. This enables the mental health counselors to gain clinical information, while simultaneously promoting personal growth and change.
