Transfer of knowledge
One of the main pillars of Terapia Aventura is to promote the dissemination of knowledge and experiences in order to facilitate the use, application and operation of adventure therapy in Spain and Europe. Our aim is the publication, dissemination or teaching with high quality standards, for this we have implemented the following lines of action:
LINES OF RESEARCH WITH UNIVERSITIES AND RESEARCH CENTERS
We are currently implementing several lines of research with different universities. These lines are directed towards the enhancement of positive adolescent development through adventure therapy, the evaluation of preventive and treatment interventions in addictions with adolescents and adults, the promotion of occupational health and the prevention and treatment of burnout through therapeutic contact in the natural environment.
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ADVENTURE THERAPY
We are creators and co-editors of the International Journal of Adventure therapy. This initiative arises from the need to create a specialized platform to disseminate research and best practices in the European environment.
We have published two specialized books, more than 15 publications in national and international scientific journals, more than 30 participations in national and international congresses, etc. Click here to see the complete list.
