This workshop examines a triangulation study on how adventure therapy can be used for helping professionals experiencing burnout.

Unda Avota from Adventure Therapy Latvia created a 3-day test program, then refined it slightly and applied it to two study groups, using the Professional Quality of Life Scale in pre, post, follow-up tests. Qualitative data were collected 2 weeks after the intervention in individual interviews and 3 months later in focus group interviews. This workshop will examine the findings of our adventure therapy can be used to reduce burnout and improve mind-body connections. The results surpassed expectations, even in spite of the COVID-19 outbreak, even after 3 months, several participants admitted that they felt the positive impact and actively applied the learned skills for stress management.
