The Way of the Chief: Adventure Therapy Leadership Skills

Joshua D. Mendenhall

'Hoods in the woods', 'juvenile delinquents', 'troubled teens', 'youth at risk'...., it takes a particular kind of person to work in an outdoor setting with kids like that. Modern adventure therapy has been evolving for well over half a century, and although that evolution has been somewhat Nietzschean at times, the refined concepts that have emerged are more effective and robust than ever before. So too has the role of the guide; a wilderness lead is a uniquely versatile and talented individual, steadfast and flexible, while still being aware of both the macro and micro of the natural world. Woodscrafty counselor, wise teacher, risk manager, physically fit and fun, they are tasked to stand beside and mentor young humans at the crossroads of life.
If you'd like to know whether you could be that strong kind of person, (or perhaps 'that person of kind strength'), then here is a new guide for the new lead guide. A road map to "The Way of the Chief".
In this edition, the author has expanded and addressed the growing interest of others (parents, business and community leaders, students of all kinds), in outdoor leadership skills, and how they can apply to all walks of life.
