Australian Association for Bush Adventure Therapy – National Forum – Mylor, South Australia 2022

This year’s theme for the Australian Association of Bush Adventure Therapy (AABAT) National Forum 2022 is ‘Venturing Out, Journeying Within’, a theme which challenges us to practice what we preach about the practical application of outdoor, nature-based experiences for the purpose of healing and enhancing our health and well-being.

This year’s Forum will focus on sharing the myriad of therapeutic experiences that can be delivered through outdoor experiential journeys and nature-based health practices. Many of these approaches and improving wellbeing are being practiced in combination with mainstream approaches to health care, as well as complimentary and allied health and indigenous on-country approaches. These kinds of practices are being used across the life course, from early childhood resilience-building, youth at risk interventions, post-traumatic growth, disability life enhancement, family therapy, suicide prevention, recovery from domestic violence, workplace wellness, team and leadership development, to aging well, and more.
