Best Practice Survey
TAPG has been engaged in the process to produce a statement of best practice for adventure therapy (AT) since 2001, with writing of preferred programming standards for the administration of adventure and wilderness therapy programs beginning in 2007. You will find the tangible outcome of this project in the working document online.
Best practices are the elements and activities of intervention design, planning, and implementation that are recommended based on the best knowledge available. Historic precedent, practitioner experience and judgment, theoretical developments, and empirical and basic research results inform them. It is designed to inform practitioners, administrators, consumers, and policy makers on theory, process, and outcomes guiding AT. As a part of this effort, we endeavor to keep it updated as the field grows in knowledge and understanding. Your ideas and experiences are integral contributions for this project.
