Basic Trauma Focussed Adventure Therapy is a two-day training designed for Youth Workers and Outdoor Leaders wishing to combine both fields into a highly engaging, targeted and effective therapeutic process.
Mental health interventions for young people need to be engaging, rich, deep and rapid. Adventure therapy is all of those things when delivered with sound frameworks and models.
YFO provides the Industry with trauma focused or trauma informed service reviews that will bring your service into a sharpened focus on change.
YFO founded the Youth Complex Trauma Network through the Mental Health Professionals Networks (MHPN). This federally funded and free network meets quarterly.
This is not a YFO program but rather a coordinated group of non-affiliated speakers.
Register and come along to learn various approaches, techniques and topics relating to healing young people with complex histories.
YFO encourages tertiary students 2nd year and above to intern with us to develop adventure therapy skills while studying social services courses. Put that theory into practice through dynamic, exciting and rich group work.
The internship will expose you to our range of programs and age groups. Griffith University supports Service Learning as an elective unit. Many courses require placement hours. Take advantage of the opportunity to intern and earn course credit.
