A guide to the Micro-Adventure approach for those working outdoors with children and young people

Facilitating a sense of wild adventure in urban environments

  • Luke Blackham

Abstract


Are adventure/wilderness type therapies limited to geography? Can they only take place in what are traditionally considered 'wild spaces' or is it possible to facilitate a sense of adventure and wilderness in urbanised areas? This article explores the idea of micro-adventure/wilderness therapies for children and young people both for group work and one-to-one support, and demonstrates how to deliver adventure type interventions in highly developed areas.
