We truly believe in what we teach. We incorporate our teachings into our everyday lives — not only to promote well-being in ourselves, but to also set a positive example for our students. At Outback Therapeutic Expeditions, we feel that the best way to earn respect from teens is by practicing what we preach while challenging our students to initiate positive change in themselves.
At Outback, we do not feel that a “boot camp” style program is the best approach. In a safe emotional space, our students develop a sense of comfort with each member of our team. In our wilderness therapy program, we offer help for troubled teens by challenging them to improve themselves with our support and guidance. We understand that change will not come about if we force it. Genuine change will only occur when we provide our students the tools to reevaluate their own personal way of being.
