An Adventure-Based Model?
Adventure-Based Model features a holistic approach to working with clients
that engages the participant mentally, emotionally and physically. Whether
it be therapy or staff development work, even the most resistant participants
soon find themselves engaged in the process. Adventure-based activities
are action-oriented, fun, safe, and productive.
activities are ideal tools for group development because of their inherent
ability to facilitate teamwork and improve group functioning. They are
also solution-focused and whether you are in therapy or training, it
is more effective to highlight strengths and build on what clients are
already doing right.
Dr. Bandoroff is
committed to the use of an adventure-based model for working with clients
in any setting. He has used adventure activities as a catalyst for change
in the therapy office with one client as well as in a meeting hall with
a hundred clients. Simply put, there is no better way to engage clients
in a process of meaningful change.
have personally worked with youth programs, both residential and wilderness
based, for over twelve years and in all that time I have never met anyone
that is more caring and supportive than Dr. Scott Bandoroff. Scott is
always going the extra mile and has a heart the size of Utah. He understands
the challenges of today’s youth and families and knows how to
connect with them both experientially and spiritually, which in my experience
is the ONLY way to connect.
