Outdoor Education Australia invites its members to attend the AABAT 2019 Forum to experience this rapidly growing field of experiential education.

Turning over a new leaf  is the theme of the 2019 Australian Association for Bush Adventure Therapy Forum. Organisers see it as a fantastic opportunity to experience the transformational nature of Bush Adventure Therapy, and understand how it has brought about positive change in individuals, culture, practices, and research.

AABAT 2019 Forum Key Info

The forum will be held from 7 – 11 August at the Bornhoffen PYCY at Natural Bridge in the Gold Coast hinterland’s Numinbah Valley.

Speakers

The event offers a diversity of concurrent workshops, as well as highlight presentations from special guest speakers: Emeritus Professor Judy Atkinson, Dr Gregory P. Smith, Andy Hamilton and Wild Mob Youth Ambassadors. As well there is an optional pre-forum overnight expedition through surrounding hinterland, plus numerous pre-forum workshops on topics such as Bush Adventure Therapy 101, Equine Therapy, and a Bush Adventure Therapy Research Symposium in conjunction with Griffith University.

Activities

The 2019 Forum 2019 also has nightly bonfires, bar, music, optional morning program, social activities, and plenty of chill out areas on the property to relax.

As is the work that bush adventure therapy practitioners deliver, Australian Association for Bush Adventure Therapy forums are inclusive, collaborative, and experiential.
