Stories from the Field: Mental Health and the Outdoors

Mar 10, 2021

In this second controversies episode, we explore the history of more controversies related to the field. We review the history of staff training and wages for field guides. We explore why programs are expensive and discuss resources to help families pay for treatment. We look into the safety of wilderness therapy programs and review research related to risk in the field. Included is a follow-up conversation with Kenneth Rosen, author of "Troubled: The Failed Promise of Behavioral Treatment Programs."
