Description
"Humans have long interacted with the nature world, from foraging and hunting for food to more recently, finding solace and peace in a beautiful vista. Our connection to nature runs deep in our DNA, yet our modern world has humans indoors almost 93% of the day. There is growing evidence that being in nature provides a healing elixir for physical and mental ailments. In fact, some physicians are "prescribing nature" for relief of patient's ailments. Ecotherapy, a growing but lesser known construct in mental health, describes the reciprocal relationship humans have with nature and the capacity of that relationship to build strength and provide healing. This book provides an overview of the theoretical constructs of Ecotherapy highlighting historical considerations and recent research within the discipline. Perspectives, examples and reflections are provided through the author's own experience as a former wilderness therapist and current Ecotherapist and counselor educator. Chapters include practical ways to incorporate Ecotherapy with children and adults, within schools settings, in group work and with veteran populations. Descriptions of other Ecotherapy modalities are also included, such as animal-assisted, equine-assisted, horticultural, forest bathing, green exercise and adventure based therapy. There is chapter devoted to designing an Ecotherapy course within a counseling program and finally, a chapter describing ways that a therapist can "become" an Ecotherapist. Case examples, techniques and practical and ethical considerations are provided throughout. To bring the content to life, several contributors offer stories, reflections and experiences with nature are a partner in the therapeutic relationship"--
