The allure of adventure is often synonymous with an adrenaline rush – the heart-pounding moments when scaling a height or navigating uncharted waters. But delve deeper, and you’ll find that adventure is a transformative experience. It’s a catalyst for profound change, especially for young people on the precipice of self-discovery. In this post, we venture into the transformative power of adventure programs for youth, weaving through self-confidence, teamwork, and personal development milestones achieved along the way.
The program, led by experienced allied health practitioners, is designed around the principles of adventure therapy. It takes a holistic approach to wellbeing, focusing on enhancing physical fitness, emotional resilience, and social skills. Our team utilises evidence-based therapeutic techniques and aligns them with fun and engaging outdoor activities.
Welcome to a behind-the-scenes look at the transformative world of OpentraX Adventure Therapy Programs. We’re excited to share with you our unique approach, where therapeutic outcomes are achieved through innovative, enjoyable, and individually tailored outdoor activities.
Adventure therapy is a transformative approach that blends fun, thrill and healing to foster personal growth, self-confidence and social competence. OpentraX, as a pioneering provider of adventure therapy in Australia, presents a unique therapeutic model, termed Social-traX©, which is primarily geared towards developing social skills in a stimulating and engaging environment. With a blend of structured and unstructured activities led by experienced practitioners and exercise physiologists, Social-traX© creates a safe environment where participants can learn, grow and thrive.
One of the defining characteristics of OpentraX adventure therapy programs is our initial assessment (IAx). As the gateway to our tailored approach, the IAx is a crucial step that ensures we design and implement therapy plans that cater specifically to each individual’s needs.
At OpentraX, we firmly believe that the setting plays a significant role in the effectiveness of therapy. By hand-picking each location, we harness the transformative power of the great outdoors and complement our therapeutic approach. Our programs unfold in diverse locations across South East Queensland, turning everyday locales into exciting therapeutic spaces. From local parks to expansive nature reserves, we create therapeutic adventures that are as varied as the landscapes they span.
Our approach to outdoor adventure therapy is steeped in the belief that therapy isn’t just about treatment but also about human connection. We’re not just creating programs; we’re crafting experiences rooted in empathy, understanding, and trust.
