Adventure Programming (ISBN10: 1892132095; ISBN13: 9781892132093)

Summary: This revised edition of Adventure Education (1991), brings together the current ideas of many practitioners of adventure programming to reveal the extent of the literature in the field, providing insight into every aspect of this ongoing movement. Change for society and communities is the altruistic end point sought by adventure programs through adventurous activities such as outdoor pursuits, initiative activities, and ropes or challenge courses which are all discus
sed in this text.

The first section of this book examines the four categories of programming--recreational, educational, developmental, and therapeutic--from the perspectives of different authors. Recreational adventure programs change the way people feel: their primary purpose is to entertain, energize, or teach skills. Educational adventure programs change the way people think: their primary purpose is to bring awareness and understanding. Developmental adventure programs change the way people behave: their primary purpose is to improve functional actions. Therapeutic adventure programs change the way people malbehave: their primary purpose is to reduce dysfunctional actions. Subsequent sections examine the history and philosophy of the field. Sections on social psychology and learning trace the theories behind human behavior and change. The leadership and administration section considers the tasks of working with people and managing adventure programs. Sections on settings and clients show the depth of adventure programming locations and the breadth of its influence with people. A final section examines the world, environmental, and spiritual perspectives of adventure programming.
