More About Transpersonal Psychology and Wilderness Therapy
Transpersonal Psychology includes the traditional views of psychology coupled with a broader idea that clients are impacted by their mental, physical, emotional lives as well as their family, environment and spiritual outlooks. This modality of therapy concentrates on all of the attributes that contribute to someone’s current mental states and emotional patterns. Transpersonal Psychology combines knowledge from both Western and Eastern studies of psychology, allowing a larger framework for therapy and for clients.
Wilderness Therapy uses the natural world to create and support therapeutic relationship. Eve has been trained to incorporate nature through many different aspects such as rock climbing, hiking, gardening and horseback riding.
Both of these therapeutic standpoints concentrate on the “big picture.” Eve believes we are interconnected with all of the systems that surround us. Although there are times when we feel alone, we are still making an impact; we are still powerful and influential beings.
